Parents, family, and those important in the lives of students are key to student success. Indiana University understands that. And, while it is true that there are laws and regulations that direct us regarding access to information, we have no intention of leaving you out of the loop. Specific access to student information can be provided by the student; general information, tips, guides, and campus news are easily available to you.
