Welcome to Saint Joseph’s University!


We’re confident that Saint Joseph’s will quickly become a home away from home for your student, and a community you will be proud to take part in. As your student navigates the college experience, there will be exciting moments, challenges, opportunities and a lot of growth. We ask you to partner with us and provide them space to develop independence and grow in confidence and encouragement to pursue their academic, professional and personal goals.

Role of Parents & Families

Parents and families, you have an important role as your student’s coaches and role models. The best way to provide support is by listening to your students, empowering them to take personal responsibility for their academics, relationships, and all aspects of their lives, and guiding them to use the resources available to them at the University.



The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) affords students certain rights with respect to their education records. For more information related to FERPA at Saint Joseph's University can be found on the Registrar's site
