Parents, Guardians, and Carers

Welcome to the Crimson Pride family!

Starting college can be exciting and challenging for both you and your student, and we want to commend you for your work in supporting your student through this transition. Indiana University Columbus understands that you, as a family member and supporter, are a stakeholder in your student’s academic and career exploration journey. You can help your student by encouraging dialogue, promoting the use of free campus resources, and knowing who on campus to connect your student to for academic planning and career development. 

We offer New Student Orientation, Early Start, and First-Year Seminar programs to help your student acclimate to the college environment and connect them with resources that will help them flourish on their college journey. Your student's success is our priority.
