Prescott College is committed to creating a safe learning community. Utilizing guidance from theCDC, government agencies, and the college’s Guiding Principles, we have implemented a number of initiatives to keep our community safe. We are all in this together and ask for your commitment to doing your part in reducing the potential spread of COVID-19.
As a parent or family member of a new or returning Prescott College student, we know that you play an important part in the success of your student. Here are a few things you can do to make sure that you are working to help prepare your student before the Fall term starts.
We've created a planning document to assist you and your students in thinking about their health and well-being this year. One of the most important things you can do is make sure they have all information they may need for the term ahead at their fingertips. Take a few minutes and use this worksheet to talk with your student about your safety plan for this year. If you fill this form out encourage your student to print it out and bring it with them as part of the Quarantine Kit.
Getting Access- FERPA is the Family Educational Right to Privacy Act. This Act was put in place to protect students' privacy over their educational information. What this means is that if your student is over 18 years old there are several educational records that we cannot share with you without their permission. Before the term starts is a great time to talk with your student about completing a release form that would allow the institution to share information if it becomes necessary. You can find the form here. Upon completion, please return the form to the Registrar's Office at registrar.prescott.edu.

Students who plan to be joining us for the first time in the Fall of 2020 can expect to live in a single room for the duration of the term.
