Parents of Prospective Students
You’ve encouraged them, motivated them, guided them, supported them, and inspired them. The transition to college is a huge journey for students, and we know that you’re on that journey with them.
As a Fordham parent, you’ll see your student’s support network grow, and you’ll cheer them on as their personal and academic passions blossom into career paths, research opportunities, extracurricular pursuits, and service to their community.
As a Jesuit institution, Fordham believes in the principle of magis, in constantly working toward excellence in all aspects of life—intellectual, emotional, physical, and moral. We strive to give your students the tools they need both to excel academically and to make positive, socially responsible change in the world. These are high goals, but we know you—and your student—are up for the challenge.
But the application process doesn’t have to be a challenge, and we want to help make it easier for your family. Whether it’s planning your first visit, preparing for application deadlines, or researching scholarships after your student is admitted, we are here to help you along the way.
