We're proud of our engaged and excited community of parents and family members, and all undergraduate student family members are automatically members of our Family Association.

We'll keep you connected to college life and we would love to hear your ideas about events and topics.

About Us

In 2014, the Office of Student Transition Programs began programming for family members in recognition of the vital role parents and family members play in the academic success of their students.  Because family members are a very important part of the College community, we will make every effort to promote family communication and involvement. Whether you are family members of new or returning students, we hope your experience with John Jay is positive and rewarding.

Our office creates dynamic, student-centered experiences to inspire purposeful transitions and equip students and their family members with resources, guidance and peer connections.

    Student transitions such as the first year of college, transfer experience, degree completion, and new graduate student experiences are critical junctures in the educational pipeline and provide unique opportunities for postsecondary student learning and development. 

    • Assist family members in navigating campus resources, services and programs
    • Assist family members in supporting their students and empowering them to take responsibility while enrolled at John Jay
    • Enhance communication between John Jay and family members
    • Develop a sense of community among John Jay families to provide support, advice and opportunities for involvement.
