Parents and Family
Attending college can be a time of transition for students and their family. We recognize that parents and families are an essential component in the success of Washington State students. Your continued support and guidance is an important piece to your son or daughter’s academic and personal success.

We provide to your student:
- assist in exploring majors and selecting a career path
- provide academic and career advising
- help students with academic deficiency and reinstatement
- locate jobs and internships
- develop resumes and curriculum vita
Frequently Asked Questions
Who can I talk to about my student’s progress?
It is our hope that your student has been openly sharing their progress with you. But, if you have questions, you are welcome to contact your son or daughter’s academic advisor. It is important for you to know that Federal law prohibits us from sharing academic information unless we have your student’s written consent. Without their consent, we can only discuss policies and procedures in general.
How can I locate my student’s advisor?
Ask your student. Each student’s assigned advisor is located in myWSU student portal.
What resources are available to help students with their academics?
The ASCC provides a number of services to students including, academic and career advising, career counseling, peer tutoring, and workshops. As a whole, Washington State University offers a number of resources.
