UD Parent 101

We welcome you to the University of Dallas family and hope that the journey for you and your student will be fulfilling and meaningful.  You are not alone as you experience 'letting go' of your student this year.  We hope to be there to answer questions and provide the resources you need during this exciting time in your family's life.

On this page you will find suggested tips for how you can help your student navigate life at UD.  We encourage you to empower your student to deal with many of the challenges your student will face at college rather than solving problems for him or her.

Please feel free to contact the Student and Parent Office with any questions or concerns you may have.
