Information for Families of Admitted Students

This page is no longer actively updated.

All information regarding the reopening of Providence College and plans for the fall semester will be posted at reopen.providence.edu.

In a normal year, parents and guardians have many questions about the transition to college. But this is not a normal year. Families are facing unprecedented challenges, and our high school seniors are missing out on all the ceremonies and celebrations that serve as a rite of passage into college. They’re hurting. And we’re hurting for them. We acknowledge these losses, and we pledge to do everything in our power to make their first year of college unforgettable.

We’ve created this page as a resource for parents and guardians as you navigate the college decision process during these unusual times. We hope it answers some of the questions you may have. If you’d like to speak with someone, reach out if you need anything. We’re here for you. And we’re here for your student.

Enrollment Deadline Extended to June 1

Parent and Guardian Webinars

An Evening with College Leadership

Rev. Brian J. Shanley, O.P. ’80, president of Providence College, and Kristine Goodwin, vice president for student affairs, teamed up on a webinar to share what parents and guardians can expect in the next four years and the role that you will play. This webinar was filmed on April 14.

Real Talk: Parent to Parent Webinar

Parents of current Providence College students will come together to answer your questions and share their children’s experience with the College, but you’ll shape the rest of the agenda. Join them to have all your final questions answered or learn more about the community your student will join this fall.

Experience Campus

Virtual Visit Week

Experience PC whenever — and wherever — you are. Plan to spend at least an hour taking tours, watching short videos, and seeing firsthand what makes PC unique. We recommend using a desktop or laptop computer, but a phone or tablet is just fine, too.

Campus Tours

Virtually visit the campus that your student will call home for the next four years. Options include a campus tour and residence hall tours.
