UT Tyler Parent and Family Programs

Keeping Families Informed and Connected

Welcome to the UT Tyler community! The University of Texas at Tyler's Parent and Family Programs links parents and families to vital information and opportunities to stay connected to campus.

Whether your family member is a UT Tyler student or considering becoming one, there are excellent resources available to answer your questions and address your concerns. Our goal is to make the transition to college as smooth as possible for you and your student, and to keep you informed throughout the coming years.
