Resources for Parents

How can parents help with the transition to college?

  • Remember that college is the student’s primary job and encourage them to treat it as such.
  • Encourage your student to create an appropriate study area with reduced distractions, plenty of light, a smooth work surface for books and writing, an easily accessible filing system for organizing class materials and a comfortable chair.
  • Encourage your student to make an appointment with the LLCC Accessibility Services office as early as possible to discuss accommodations.
  • Make sure your student has recent, appropriate documentation of a disability for the Accessibility Services office.
  • Encourage your student to visit the Accessibility Services office and/or schedule an appointment with an academic success professional the first week of classes for assistance in organizing and planning for a successful learning experience.
  • Remind your student to check grades frequently during the semester and be aware of grade status in all classes at all times. Students often ask for help after it is too late.
