Parents of Current Students – FAQs
Wartburg students are expected to conduct themselves in a mature fashion and respect the rights of other students. Because the college community encourages self-discipline to promote responsibility, parents are rarely asked to be involved with situations unless they are deemed necessary. Click here to view the student handbook, which includes policies and resources.
As a parent you have spent the last 18 or more years looking out for your student which is great, but the college years is an important time for your student to grow. This can include letting them figure some things out on their own. Walking the fine line between being there to support your student vs. stepping in to do things for them can be tricky sometimes.
FINANCIAL AID FAST FACTS
Sticker price is the total yearly cost of a college education, but net price is what you actually pay after scholarships and grants are factored in. Private colleges typically start with a higher sticker price but are also more generous with financial aid dollars than lower-priced public colleges. Some students pay less than the average net price, and some pay more, but all Wartburg students receive an incredible, high-quality education at a workable cost.
