Welcome Parents & Families

At Colby-Sawyer College we recognize the important role that parents and family members play in our students' daily lives. We view our relationship with you as an important partnership in which we share the same goal: your student's success.

As Parent and Community Partnerships Coordinator, I am dedicated to being a resource for parents and family members of current and prospective students. I will be the point of contact for parents and families and can connect you to people at the College who can help with different situations or questions that may arise. In addition, I can give you tools and ideas for contributing to your student's success and to keep you informed about what is happening at Colby-Sawyer through our newsletter and other email updates.

Please use the Parent and Community Partnerships Office as your Colby-Sawyer resource – call, email, or stop by the office on the second floor of the Ware Student Center when you visit campus.

Student Checklist for Fall Move-In

Please encourage your student to frequently check his or her Colby-Sawyer e-mail as this is the way we communicate with our students, especially over the summer. He or she should also be checking the online New Student Getting Started Guide or Returning Student Checklist to make sure everything is completed that we need before move-in day.

All students have a dynamic checklist to indicate if they've completed the items require of them before they arrive on campus to move-in in September. For returning students some of these items include being financially clear and updating their emergency contact information.

For new students there is much more required of your student before he or she starts the Colby-Sawyer journey. Because this process is likely new for you, I've put together a Getting Started Guide: Parent Edition to walk you through what we're asking of your new student and also provides contact information if you have questions.

Your student should continue to check the student checklist on myColbySawyer through the rest of the summer. If all items have been completed before your student arrives on campus in September the check-in process will be easier for you all.
