Parents & Families

Welcome to the Becker College community. To hear a special message for parents and families from Dean of Admissions, Danielle O’Connell, click here! Whether you are a parent, sibling, grandparent, aunt, uncle, or friend of a Becker College student, you play a vital role in the educational success and transformational experience that students can achieve at Becker College.

The Office of Admissions serves you and offers some of the necessary resources to help ensure your student has a smooth transition into the College.  Your encouragement, guidance, and support are crucial in helping your student develop the necessary skills for emerging into adulthood.

Becker College is focused on our core values of excellence, accountability, community and diversity, social responsibility, integrity, and creative expression. Here, students are challenged to become well-rounded and well-grounded individuals who strive toward reaching their greatest potential.

We’ve gathered some information below that we hope will be helpful as you counsel your student(s) throughout the admission process.
