Parents & Families
You’re an important part of your student’s college decision. Whether it’s taking them to a campus tour, encouraging them to apply or helping them through the financial aid process, UT Austin recognizes the importance of families. We offer a variety of resources to help you guide your student through the admissions process. And once your student has been accepted, we also offer resources to help you transition to life as a new college parent. Together, we can ensure your student has the support they need to succeed.
