To Prospective Parents:

College is one of the biggest emotional and financial commitments a family will make. That's why it's important to support and encourage your child during the extensive, and sometimes difficult, college search and admission process.

The more pertinent information you have about Suffolk University and the college admission process, the better the advice you will be able to impart to your son or daughter. So we invite you to explore the Suffolk Admission website with the help of these quick links:

Financial Aid Information
Advanced Placement Credit
Academic Calendar
Information for Visiting the Campus
International Students
Helpful Resources for Parents

As you prepare to send your child off to college, I would like to recommend the book Letting Go: A Parents' Guide to Understanding the College Years by Coburn, Treeger, and Madge (Harper Collins, 2003). I think you will find that your concerns and experiences are shared by many other parents.

If your son/daughter is applying to the University, we encourage you to include your email address in the application. We do send parent-specific email communications to update you on the latest news, announcements, or changes at Suffolk.

Please know that we are here to help with any questions or concerns you might have during the application process. I look forward to helping and working with you during this important time.
