For Parents

While the Virtual CAST events in June are for students and do not include parent programming, you can look forward to robust parent-focused programming throughout the summer. We understand that this transition in your student's life is also a significant transition in your life as well.Tulane has an Office of Parent Programs to support families of our students from commitment to commencement. Beginning in May, we will provide information throughout the summer to help you support your student's transition from high school to college and learn more about our resources to maximize your student's success at Tulane. In addition to a parent version of the New Student Checklist, you'll receive the "Parents as Partners" parent e-newsletters every two weeks beginning on May 15. We'll also provide a set of webinars on various topics important to parents and opportunities for live Q and A. You can find directions to these resources at in May.

Penny Wyatt, the Director of Parent Programs, supports parents with a variety of communication resources, events, information and assistance. Below you can view her presentation, as well as presentations from the provost and faculty, that were delivered at prior on-campus CAST events. For any questions, you may contact Penny Wyatt at
