We understand that the families of our participants are a critical part of the student’s journey throughout their college experience and their ultimate academic success. CHE staff provides parents with support during times when they have questions about policies and procedures at UNC and/or need someone to help understand the lingo and paperwork that may need to be completed. At CHE, we welcome phone calls from parents who may be uncertain of an institutional practice. However, we cannot share details about your student without writing consent because we are govern by FERPA regulations.
We invite parents to participate in New Student Orientation (NSO) along with their student. The I am First session provides an opportunity for parents and family members to learn more about the educational experience their students will embark upon at UNC. Additionally, we welcome parents/family to join us on the first day of the summer CHE Connections and remain for the dinner. This gives parents an opportunity to become familiar with the CHE staff and program.
