Parents and Families
Welcome parents and families of students at Baruch College!
You may not know it now, but you too are about to embark on a journey through college for the next few years. The partnership between parent and student or family member and student is as important as ever; it’s just a different partnership than the one you had when the student was in high school. Baruch College wants your student to succeed and we will do everything we can to transform your student into an educated, responsible, and productive citizen. We invite you to partner with us in this process.
To help your student through their college career here are some tips on getting them adjusted:
- Get them familiar with the students webpage
- Stay updated on the academic calendar
- While First-Year Seminar (FYS 1000) is required for incoming first-year students, encourage your transfer student to sign up for a mentor for help adjusting to Baruch
