Parents & Guardians

When living on campus, independence and structure go hand-in-hand. We provide a home base where students can grow academically, socially and emotionally.

There's still time to apply for housing for the 2019–2020 school year, visit How to Apply. You're welcome to come to campus for a guided tour of the residential communities in Phase I and II. We offer them weekdays at 9:30 a.m. or 3:30 p.m. You can register here.

Below, you'll find information about your student’s essential moving items and important dates and events. You'll also find an explanation of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and our community standards for living. Make sure to check out our Photo & Video Gallery.

Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a federal law that aims to protect the privacy of student education records. FERPA grants parents the right to their student’s academic records, but only until they turn 18, when the rights are transferred to the student. If your student wants to share their academic information with you, they must fill out and turn in a FERPA Form to the Office of Housing Services. To learn more about FERPA, visit the U.S. Department of Education's website.
