Parents and Family Members

Whether you’re sending a student to college for the first time or the fifth, it’s a big adjustment. To make this transition easier, IU has several services and programs specifically for families. And FYE is here throughout your student’s first year to give you information and answers. We want to help you be a great resource for your student, just as we hope to be. Be sure your student provides us with your email address so you receive our monthly parent newsletter, and visit throughout the year to see information for parents. You can reach us at (812) 855-HELP (4357) and After all, we have the same goal you do: help your student succeed.
