Parental Notification

Parents are considered partners in the pursuit of their child's education, however Colgate also regards students as adults and thus will seek to contact parents typically only when a student's career may be at risk.

Whether it is for health, academic, or disciplinary reasons, administrative deans will make the decision to contact parents. Acute medical situations may also result in parental notification such as hospitalizations that occur from excessive consumption of alcohol. Specific information regarding parental notification is available in the Student Handbook.
