Your student’s transition to the TWU campus environment is an exciting time that often brings a wide range of feelings for students and their parents.  The Counseling Center staff is available to consult with parents and students about this transition.

Please note that the Counseling Center abides by legal and ethical confidentiality mandates. This means the staff cannot release any information about your adult student without their written consent. We cannot “confirm or deny” even meeting with your student without this consent. We recognize this is a significant change for many parents who are used to communicating freely with their child’s providers. We empathize with your concern while working to ensure your student finds comfort in our confidential services. Learn more about the student services the Counseling Center offers.

Prepare Your Child for Changes

We encourage you to talk with your student about their college transition. Topics to cover with your student include:

  • How, when, and how frequently will you and your student communicate
  • How to seek help early from faculty and staff, before issues become emergencies
  • How to manage money
  • How to manage time
  • How to communicate with roommates about conflicts
  • Expectations regarding alcohol, drugs, and sex
  • Preparation for feeling lonely, homesick, scared, nervous, excited, and overwhelmed.
