We're all here for the same reason: to help your student succeed! At SCC, we know how important your involvement and support are to that success, and we've created this guide to help you provide the best possible support.


Time for a little tough love (for you):

Now that your student is going to college, part of what he or she will be doing is developing the skills to navigate the real world independently. YOUR job is to navigate the fine line between helping and hovering.

So, here's what you can do that will really help your student:

  • Become informed
  • Show support
  • Encourage independence
  • Encourage independence (yes, we said it again. It's that important.)

And here's what not to do:

  • Don't call the college on your student's behalf. Seriously.

Believe it or not, your student has the ability to problem-solve and make decisions – and even when they're the wrong ones, they're helping lay the foundation for confidence and success in post-college life.

So, take a deep breath, let it out, let it go, and watch your student soar.
