Parents and Families

As a valued member of The University of Alabama family, we are excited and proud to have you as a partner in your student's success here at the Capstone. You play a crucial role in your student's college career and we are happy to work together, with you, to maximize your student's learning experience.

Within the Division of Student Affairs, we combine in-class experiences with opportunities outside the classroom to provide each student with a transformative education. Whether serving in a leadership role on campus or participating in intramural sports, you can help promote involvement to your student, helping them feel and be connected to campus.

It is our goal to assist you in supporting the transition and academic success of your student. We serve as the communication link between the University and parents. We recognize you know your student best and ask you to utilize Parent Programs as a resource when you feel your student needs extra support on campus or when you have a question or concern. Keep a close check on this website and enroll in PENPALS to stay in the know with campus happenings.

If you ever have additional questions, or if we can help in any way, please contact the Office of Parent Programs using the toll-free Parent Helpline at 1-800-392-2777, or e-mail parents@ua.edu.

Best Wishes,

The Parent Programs staff
