You’re Part of the UCR Family, Too!
As a parent, guardian or family member of a UCR student, you have access to many resources that will help you to support your student during this journey.

And, as a team, we will all nurture their passions and dreams. We can’t wait to see you someday soon at their commencement ceremony!
UCR will support your student by:
- Keeping them safe with the Campus Safety Escort Service, University of California Police Department (24/7), access to free self-defense classes and free Point-to-Point Shuttle Service that will take them from an on-campus location to their off-campus home, as long as it is within the service area.
- Keeping them healthy, both mentally and physically with nutritional dining options, health promotion activities, Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) and on-campus medical services that are covered by their automatic enrollment into UC's Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP).
- Keeping them happy with tons of activities at the Student Recreation Center, Associated Students Program Board (ASPB) and 450+ Student Organizations.
- Providing them with a world-class education from award-winning educators, like the two Nobel Prize winners who recently joined our faculty.
- Offering generous financial aid.
- Connecting them with high profile companies that hire UCR graduates, like Amazon, Apple Inc., Goldman Sachs, Linkedin and The Walt Disney Company.
You can support your student by:
- Giving them friendly reminders of important dates and deadlines.
- Getting involved through the Parents Association.

- You can also consult with a Case Manager if you're concerned about your student's well-being.
Please Note: It's understandable that you are interested in your student's progress; however, the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) gives college students the right and responsibility to control access to their educational records, including their grades and financial statements. If your students chooses, they can grant you access to their records. Visit the Registrar's website to learn more.
