Pre-College Summer for Parents

As a parent, are you struggling with details surrounding your child going to college? You’re not alone!

Feeling Overwhelmed about Your Student’s Transition to College?

The transition to college is difficult not only for students, but for parents as well. Often there is no direction on how to apply forPre-Collge Familyfinancial aid, confusion on choosing a college major, and wondering what your student is really doing every day and if they are safe. We hope to clarify some of these “things you wish you knew” before sending your child off to college at our Pre-College Summer for Parents session.

Parents of students registered for the 2017 Pre-College Summer Program are welcome to attend a complimentary 2-hour session for parents after dropping off their student on Sunday to the Pre-College Summer program. This session is a non-UConn specific session developed in response to requests from past Pre-College Summer parents that addresses common college-readiness topics confronting families.

Parents will learn more about:

  • College Admissions
  • Financial Aid
  • Selecting a College Major
  • Campus Safety

 How do I sign up for Pre-College Summer for Parents?

A question on the online registration for UConn’s Pre-College Summer program will ask if parents would like to attend Pre-College Summer for Parents. Parents will then indicate the Sunday that their student will be dropped off to the program as their date of attendance for Pre-College Summer for Parents.
