Guide for Families of Commuter Students Request

What your Student should Expect

Starting college involves change in your student's life - change of a significant nature. Even students who are living at home leave behind the comfortable environment of high school and may be leaving well-established friendships. If your college student is older, he or she may be entering college after some time in the workforce. In either case, first-year students who commute to college enter new social and learning environments that present unique rewards and challenges.

The National Resource Center for The First-Year Experience offers a helpful guide for families of commuter students that the Office of First Year Experience and Student Retention at UVU would like to make available to families of first-year students. For a free copy of the guide, please complete the form below and we will mail a copy to you.
