Congratulations! You’ve survived the college admissions process and the acceptance letters have begun to arrive. You are excited for your student, but you may be beginning to be a bit nervous. Now that your son or daughter is almost a college student, you’re almost a college parent! You may have been involved in helping your student through the admissions process – but now you wonder what you should be doing and exactly what your new role will be.
If you’re a new college parent, and you’re here at College Parent Central, you’ve found the right place to get started. Parents of college students are often told to “let go”, but we believe it’s all about knowing how your role changes and finding the ways that you can be productively involved to help your student throughout his college career.
