What’s different from K-12 family involvement?
In your student’s K-12 education, you may have used applications like Infinite Campus, ParentLink, or Campus Parent where you received notifications about your student’s grades, attendance, and messages from the school. Because of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA, 1974), all educational communications must go from UNLV directly to your student. This includes information about Admissions, Financial Aid, class registration, to do lists, and grades.
To keep families informed, we created the UNLV Family Network, which has 10,000 active family members. We provide a monthly e-newsletter and a Facebook group with updates and key dates. Please consider joining the network here. We recognize that parents and families can be a critical support system for students and encourage you to ask questions and support one another on the journey.
