Information is power
Our Web site is packed with information to help you and your student sort through admission and financial aid procedures. It’s also a good place to read about AU’s points of pride so that you can compare apples to apples when looking at other schools. If you’re concerned about campus safety, know that we have that covered, too.
To help you, we’ve gathered tips from other parents — people who have been right where you are, walking that fine line between parenting and allowing your student to decide on his or her own which college is best.
The best way to ease your mind — and that of your student — is to visit our campus.
As you explore the possibility of AU for your student, please contact us with your questions, concerns and comments.
