Parent & Family Programs

Families who are knowledgeable about campus resources and involved in their student's education are a key factor in helping students to succeed in college. As a family member of an NKU student, it is important for you to get involved and stay informed in order to best support your student's education, as well as their transition to adulthood. We offer multiple ways for you to help your student succeed. You can find out more here.
