Parents and Families
Threshold isn’t just for our incoming students — a student’s transition to college is a transition for the whole family. We know it’s full of excitement, anticipation, and lots of questions. North Park is excited to welcome the parents and families of our incoming students to campus. In fact, we’re honored to join you for this leg of your family’s journey.
Even after you leave your student on campus, the Student Engagement staff is here to serve you, the parents and families of our students, in a variety of ways. We hope you find information and resources below helpful and we encourage you to stay in touch.

Preparing for the Transition
Helping your student transition to college can be a daunting, whether that involves moving to campus or just starting a new routine of commuting. Look here for helpful details, including what your student can and can’t bring to campus housing and a checklist to help your student stay on-track as they get ready for college.
Resources for Parents and Families
Visit us online throughout the year for helpful tips, important information, and resources designed specifically for parents and families of current students. You can also update your address and email information and subscribe to our “What’s Happening on Campus” and “Family and Friends in Prayer” newsletters.
Disability Resources and Support Services
North Park is happy to provide accommodations and services, as well as academic support, to students with disabilities. We believe that our community is a great place for all students to succeed. We encourage you to familiarize yourself with this information and help your student ask for whatever help he or she might need.
Helping Your Student Stay Healthy
Moving to a new place, meeting new people, sitting in new classrooms—all of these activities have a way of increasing stress and students’ propensity to catch a cold. North Park University offers both a Health Services Center and Counseling Support Services to assist your student in making healthy choices for their mind and body.
As a Christian institution of higher education, North Park is committed to providing a campus environment characterized by mutual respect among students, faculty, and staff. The University does not tolerate any form of sexual violence or other offence, harassment, discrimination, retaliation, or misconduct.
