Parent Resources

As a parent, you are a valuable member of our community!

Your student will have many opportunities at Coe both in and out of the classroom. They will be challenged and stretched. That's what college is all about, but it can sometimes be overwhelming, and we know you want to support your student in whatever ways possible. We are here to help - with resources, opportunities to communicate with college personnel, fun events to share with your student, and ways to stay connected to them as they move through their time at Coe.

Parent Resources

Here you will find information regarding Financial Aid, Residence Life, Health Services and more. You are encouraged to utilize the resources provided throughout your student's time here at Coe. If you have any additional questions, please contact the Office of Parent Programs at 319.399.8261.
