Remember what it felt like when your child first began to walk, first went to school, first began to drive, and first dated? Your child has now embarked on a remarkable journey - college life. This is the stage in your child's life when he/she takes the next step toward becoming an adult. This time is full of exciting adventures, challenges, newfound dreams, uncertainties, unfamiliar faces, new surroundings, and personal growth. You, as parents, follow a parallel road which includes a mixture of feelings and impressions.

At FIU, we are committing to helping each student achieve their academic and personal goals. If you are concerned about your student's academic performance, behavior, relationships or other circumstances, please call us at 305-348-2277 so we can assess what type of help your student may need.
