Congratulations on your student’s acceptance to the University of Idaho!
This is an exciting time for your family. The below information and resources below for Vandal parents will help make the transition to college life a positive experience for both you and your child.
It's very important that your student complete his/her to-do list. Please encourage your child to do so. Remember, now is an opportune time to begin encouraging your child to navigate the university for him or herself. Pretty soon, your child will be here without you and will need to know how to use resources. Please encourage your child to complete the list, but please don't do it for him or her.
1. Explore the Parent Site
Find helpful information on visiting campus, financial aid, important dates during the academic year, networking with other parents and much more.
2. Familiarize Yourself with our Student Support Services
If at any point you see your student or child struggling, you'll be able to quickly help your child and direct him or her to the appropriate resource.
