Welcome AU Parents and Families

We know that parents and families are important partners on a student's academic journey. We're dedicated to keeping you informed and helping you find the answers and guidance you're looking for from your student's acceptance to their graduation and everything in between. 

To help you on this journey, we provide a single point of contact for parents and families. If you need assistance navigating AU's many offices, please reach out to our Parent and Family Engagement team at
