As a parent, there are things that matter to you that your son or daughter may not think to ask. We're here to help you find out all you need to know, and we created this list to help you find what you're looking for, whether you're the parent of a prospective student or someone who has been here for a few years already.
Want to connect with your fellow AU parents? Join our AU Parent Connection Facebook group for important dates for your student, helpful tips, and to connect and discuss with other AU parents.
Important note: your student will need to grant permission for you to access information about their academic status. Learn more about the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA).
