Parents and Family Program

Parents and Families,

K-State is committed to keeping students and families informed about the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and its impact on campus. For up to date information refer to K-State’s COVID-19 webpage.

Parents & Family Program

Through the Parents and Family Program, you can join a community of actively engaged families dedicated to the support and success of their students. This is a completely free program designed to keep families informed, celebrate student achievements and to help you make family memories at K-State.  As a member you can access an assortment of tools and information to make the most of your Wildcat experience. You and your student have worked hard for this educational opportunity and K-State is dedicated to providing your family with the resources and support that will put your student on the path to success.


Free Membership

Parents and family members of K-State students are automatically members of the K-State Parents and Family Program. As a member your benefits include invitations to Family Day and Open House. In addition, you will have access to the K-State Parents and Family Program hotline, website, and e-mail address.

Advisory Board

The K-State Parents and Family Program is coordinated by an advisory board of volunteer leaders in cooperation with the vice president for student life/dean of students. Members of the volunteer committee meet to direct the work of the organization, establish priorities for the use of funds, and serve as a voice for K-State parents on issues pertinent to student life on our campus.
