Encourage your student to get involved!

Did you know that students who are involved in college:

  • have higher GPAs and critical thinking skills
  • are more satisfied with their college experience

This is a great time for your student to get involved! The Office of Student Activities has many activities for students to participate in and organizations that they can join. Encourage your student to check their Owlnet account for a listing of events or the Office of Activities Facebook page for more information.

How can I get information on my student’s account?

Due to FERPA, the college is not allowed to give parents their student’s account and academic information. Encourage your student to fill out a Disclosure of Information Release Form and return to the Registration and Records Office. Once on file, this will allow the college to be able to communicate more effectively with parents.
