Parent and Supporters' Handbook

The Parent and Supporters' Handbook provides answers to frequently asked questions, contact information for campus offices and strategies for supporting your student's transition, academic success and personal growth. Like many of our services, it was developed with input from Cal Poly parents and staff campus wide who field questions from students and parents on a daily basis. It addresses topics relevant to parents of all students – from newly admitted freshmen and transfers to graduating seniors and alumni.

Parent & Family Programs Staff is in the process of updating the Parent and Supporters' Handbook for the upcoming 2015-16 academic year. Thank you for your patience!
