Parents and families are an integral part of a student’s educational journey. As a member of the Truman family, you can watch your student blend academic pursuit and human connection into the kind of action that makes a difference in a profession, in their communities, in business, and in service.
The quickest, easiest way for you to receive information about your student’s grades or other student information is to ask your student to provide it to you. To learn more about FERPA, see FERPA Information for Parents.

Costs, Scholarships & Financial Aid
There are additional foundation scholarships available to currently enrolled students, financed by the contributions of alumni, friends, parents, faculty, staff, campus organizations, foundations and corporations who believe in Truman’s important mission. Students can apply for the majority of these scholarships in February.

If problems persist, students will typically start by talking to a Student Advisor or Apartment Manager to try and resolve the issues, but can eventually end in working with the Hall Director to change roommates. Roommate changes can take place after the second week of regular semester classes.
Our Campus Dining Services will work with your student on his/her dietary restrictions to try and accommodate as best we can. Reach out to someone on our team with any special concerns or requests.
If you are visiting during the weekend, you are able to park in any open campus lot.
