Whether you are near or far, having a student in University provides unique challenges. Below we have provided resources for parents and family members that make being supportive from afar as easy as possible.

Parent Handbook
All the information you need as a Franklin parent, including contact details for our offices, is in the FUS Parents Handbook (PDF).

Campus Safety
Providing students with a safe environment in which to live and learn, while keeping the FUS community well informed about campus security are priorities for our school.

Useful Numbers
In the rare case of an emergency if you need to get into contact with your student or a staff member at the University, please refer to these important useful numbers.

Important Dates
Whether you are planning a visit or booking your student’s trip home, please consult the academic calendar prior to making plans.

FERPA Policy
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) affords students certain rights with respect to their education records. The university is obligated to follow the regulations. The University is not allowed to disclose a student’s grades, course registration, and health information without the student’s permission. Because this may be a new concept, please familiarize yourself with the FERPA Regulations.

Shared Access for Parents
Shared Access is a feature of Franklin's online student records system that allows students to provide parents or guardians with online access to their student account information.  Learn more about Shared Access.
