Resources for Parents and Guardians of Students
As your student begins studying at Queen’s, he/she will engage in a journey marked by intellectual and personal growth that will shape the rest of his/her life - a truly exciting, fun, challenging, sometimes frightening, exhilarating, self-defining adventure! No doubt your family will have new experiences also.
As an adult, your student has primary responsibility for interacting with the university and he/she is directly responsible for managing his/her education (including knowing and following university policies and procedures, seeking academic support, paying fees, etc.).
Students do, of course, still look to their parents or guardians for help and guidance. On these pages, parents/guardians will find links to information and resources, as well as information on transition issues, geared to that supporting role.
