For Parents and Families
Brad Goan, Dean of Admissions:
“As the father of three children, I am repeatedly humbled by the magnitude of my parental responsibilities, and I admittedly get a little anxious when I think about going through the college search process as a dad.”
For parents of admitted students
Are you the parent or family member of a high school student preparing to make one of the biggest decisions of his or her young life? Do you have questions about the college selection process or about Transylvania specifically? We invite you to contact one of Transylvania's knowledgeable admissions counselors, who are available to provide information about the university or about conducting a college search.
No matter what role you plan to play in the process, we appreciate what you’ve already done to prepare your student for the next big step. Let us help you help your student make the best possible college decision.
When is the best time to attend college fairs? When should your student take ACT or SAT exams? When should you start to schedule college visits? View a sample timeline for our suggestions.
We've tried to provide much of the information commonly requested by Transylvania parents and prospective parents in the Families section of our website. We encourage you to explore all of the links listed in the left column on those pages.
