Parent Information

grad and dad

The Center strongly encourages you to get involved with your student's education at the University of Nevada, Reno.

Some parents are surprised to learn that with college-aged students, there are some additional considerations when you become increasingly involved. There are specific federal rules that limit the information we can release to you concerning your student.

However, the most supportive parent is an educated parent, so please take a moment to read up on the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act

Do you know?

Family participation in education is twice as predictive of students’ academic success as family socioeconomic status.

Decades of research show that when parents are involved students have:

  • higher grades
  • better test scores
  • increased graduation rates
  • better class attendance
  • increased motivation

How can you get involved?

  • Tour the campus with your student(s)
  • Learn about the resources available to students
