Vital Information

As with any transition, UChicago knows that parents will have questions about how various aspects of the University function. We encourage you to use the information presented here as a guide for discussion with your student.  Your student is the best source of information available for what is going on in their personal life and circumstances.  In keeping with the policies outlined in the Federal Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), departments in the College may not be able to discuss specific grades, situations, or outcomes with you. 

Our partnership is important, and it is our hope that this information will be the beginning of an on-going conversation centered on supporting the success of your student. As other questions come up, remember that our Parent and Family Relations staff is here to serve as your resource and partner at the University.
