Parents and Guardians

As your CCC student takes on adult responsibilities, your role changes, but your student still needs you. Your CCC student needs you to support their growth, development, and independence. Sometimes, they may even ask your advice — and may even follow it! Navigating this challenging time can be difficult, rewarding, scary, and even fun for you and your student. Here are some resources to help you make your student's experience at SUNY CCC a success and a rewarding time.

At SUNY CCC, we strive to provide your student with everything they need to succeed, be well, and enjoy their time on campus. This is an exciting time for them — and for you — as we welcome all parents, guardians, friends and family into the SUNY CCC community. Come join us!
