6 tips for the parents of college students

Stay informed

Every admitted student is assigned a WWU account. This is the same account that gives them access to myWWU and also doubles as their WWU email address. Make sure your student is checking their email and their myWWU to-do list regularly. 
Access myWWU.


Consider outside scholarships

Beyond the financial package you will receive from WWU, there are many other places to find financial assistance.
Consider this list of outside scholarships.


Talk with your student about setting parental permissions on myWWU

Once your student starts classes, we can only share information about finances and academics with people your student has given us permission to talk with. 
Set myWWU parental permissions.


Attend one of our online summer workshops

There are many helpful workshops you can attend or webinars you can watch to learn more about paying for college and residence hall live.
