Parents and Family of Enrolled Students

Together, We'll Do This

At William Paterson University, student well-being and student success are priorities. We recognize that parents and other supportive family members play an important role in this. The more you know and understand about the University, our resources, and what your student needs to be successful, the more able you are to encourage and assist them.

On this page, you will find information about a range of departments and resources that are most relevant, including health and wellness, paying for college, academic programs, career resources, campus support services and more.
