Open Forum

Hi Everyone,

I know the dogs days of summer are wearing you down.  The summer is flying by quickly, bills were due today and there are just 6 weeks until the first day of class.  How did the time fly by so quickly?

It is at this point when I know you start to forget all that we discussed in June and probably have some lingering questions out there that are just waiting to be answered.  I will open this blog up as an Open Forum to ask those questions.  Please feel free to ask. 

Those of you who wanted to be a part of the Parent Advisory Group will be getting an email from Dean Stoops in a few days, and I am hard at work to make this video for Black & Gold Beginnings.  Your students will be so proud of you, based on what I've seen.

Gentle Reminders

Hello Everyone,

As the summer marches on and the temperature continues to rise I just want to give you some gentle reminders that will help you this month.

  • Please submit your health forms to Health Services and your Housing Application to Residence Life and Housing, your student's room assignment is contingent upon these forms being submitted.
  • Collegiate Link is ready to accept registration for the Wet Feet Retreat and various events at Black & Gold Beginnings.  They are all on a first-come, first-serve basis, so the sooner you register the better.
  • Make sure that all promissory notes signed and outside scholarship information has been submitted to the Financial Aid office.
  • If your student needs to adjust their schedule in some way due to sports or some other legitimate reason (not too early, work, etc.).  That can be done starting July 15th by stopping by CASA or call at 508.626.4540.
  • The resident parking wait list will go live on July 14th on the University Police website http://www.framingham.edu/campus-police/parking-on-campus/index.html and follow their instructions.
I hope these reminders are helpful to you as the scorching temperatures make you weak!

Student Bills are Available

Hello Dedicated Parents,

I hope you enjoyed your time at Parent Orientation over the past couple of weeks and are ready to get down to business.  Today is the day that each student received an email from Student Accounts stating that their Fall 2014 bills were available to view on myFramingham. 

They will need to log in to my Framingham to view their individual bill. If you are the one paying this bill they should authorize you to have the ability to see the bill as well.  You learned how to do that during orientation. 

All bills are due on July 22, 2014.  If you have a problem with this date please don't hesitate to call Student Accounts at 508.626.4514 to discuss your options.  If there is financial aid that is not included on your bill and should be, you should call Financial Aid at 508.626.4537. 

For those of you using Tuition Management Service (TMS) don't hesitate to contact them with any questions you may have as well.

I wish you all good luck and a Happy Fourth of July!

Welcome to the First-Year Parents Blog for the Class of 2018!

I hope you all enjoyed your Parent Orientation experience, and are prepared to get your student ready to "take the plunge" on August 30th.  Thank you for your participation in the video that the Dean and I created to show to your students during Black & Gold Beginnings.  I am sure that they will be ecstatic to see your smiling faces on the big screen.

This space will be used to update you on aspects of your students experience at FSU. Your first order of business is to have a discussion with your student about what you both learned and experienced while you were at the University in the past two weeks. Together, you should take a look at the materials that each of you received and make sure all necessary paperwork has been submitted or is in process so that there are no delays in terms of health forms, housing applications, etc.

Your student will receive an email to their student email account (all official University business will be sent to this account) on July 2, 2014, informing them that the tuition bill for Fall 2014 is now available on myFramingham. It is important that you both look it over and make sure that all financial aid has been applied. If you have a question about your bill in general you can call Student Accounts at 508.626.4514; if there is a problem with a schloarship, grant, or loan being applied to your bill you should contact Financial Aid at 508.626.4537. It is important that you pay your bill by the due date. Failure to pay by that time may result in a loss of housing and classes for the fall semester.

Feel free to use the blog to ask general questions and have a conversation with each other through the comments section.
