Resources to Help Parents
Your family member/significant other is either planning to attend K-State or is already enrolled. And as a concerned individual, their choice affects you.
We hope that the following information can assist you with your concerns for the student:
Adjusting when your family member/significant other goes off to college - Whether it is the first child going to college or your partner returning to school, families have to adjust to the changes both at their home life/schedules and in the changes they see as their family member-student grows and changes. This section may assist you in that process.
When you are concerned about your student who is away at college - Here you can find out about warning signs that your student may be having difficulties and steps you can take to get assistance.
