Information for Parents

Career development is a process throughout the educational journey of your student through self-assessment, major and career exploration, making life changing decisions, and implementing a plan for professional development.  Whether you and your student are just beginning to ask questions about majors or careers, or your student has a clear goal and simply needs assistance reaching it, the Student Career Development (SCD) staff can help to pave your student's way to success!
