The Office of Parent and Family Programs engages and guides parents and family members to support the successful transition, persistence, and graduation of their Georgia College student. At Georgia College, we believe parents are our partners in student success. Through formal communication, one-on-one interaction, and campus programs, we aim to help parents achieve developmentally appropriate involvement in their students’ education.
