International Education understands that parents of international students may have special concerns about their child's well-being while studying in the United States.

All parents of international students are encouraged to learn more about the University of Richmond by visiting the Parents & Families section of the Student Development website.

Parents and families are also invited to attend a special Parent Orientation during international orientation week in August.
