Parents & Families

Parents are Partners 

Troy University understands the power that comes from parental partnership. Your support can make all the difference in your student’s life, and that’s what we want to see! We want to help your future TROY Trojan Warrior succeed in class and in life, and we are strongest when we work together.

As a parent, you play a crucial role. You have the power to influence your future Trojan’s dreams and aspirations. However, this season of your son or daughter’s life is a time for them to begin making decisions. We would suggest during this time of growing independence that you play a supportive role as your student navigates this milestone of selecting a college.

 As you navigate your student’s senior year and look forward to the upcoming freshman year, we recommend that you:

  • Familiarize yourself with admission and financial aid requirements as well as academic majors offered at TROY.
  • Allow your student to make decisions and learn from experience (while remaining on standby for advice).
  • Encourage your student to tour the Troy Campus with you at least once—and encourage them to return to explore the campus for themselves to get a feel for what to expect during their freshman year. (When you schedule your campus visit, please notify us of any special requests you or your student may have as part of the visit!)
  • Attend the parent session of IMPACT while your student goes through his or her new student orientation.
  • Make sure to review the Release of Student Information.
  • Remember that in order to receive information regarding your student’s academics, finances, etc, a completed Student Consent Form must be on file for your student.
