PARENT INFORMATION

Welcome to the Wartburg family!

Joining the Wartburg College community is about much more than sending your student to college. It’s about sharing experiences that your family will talk about for years to come, from New Student Orientation to the annual Homecoming & Family Weekend to Commencement. 

Please use the resources on this website to stay connected with us so we can better serve you and our students. Please contact us anytime you have questions. If we can’t answer your question we will be sure to connect you with someone who can. Feel free to call us at 319-352-8491 or email parents@wartburg.edu.
