As the parents of a Sac State Hornet, you may have many questions about the opportunities, requirements and challenges facing your student. We hope that the information provided here will answer some of these questions and introduce you to the many academic resources and services that are available to your student while at Sacramento State.

Academic Advising for Parents

Many parents want to assist their student in understanding her/his student record and help with academic decision making. Occasionally, parents will contact the university to discuss their student’s record. The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) prohibits university staff and faculty from discussing student records with parents. With that in mind, academic advisors have put together Academic Advising for Parents. This presentation includes advice on course planning, time management, major choice, and suggests ways to engage your student in discussions about their college experience.
