How much information can St. Peter's College give me about my son or daughter?
We respect that parents are interested in how their son or daughters are doing in university. Due to the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act and the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents act, St. Peter's College cannot give out any information about your son or daughter, even if you are paying their tuition or residence fees.
How can I encourage my son or daughter to be successful in their studies?
The switch from high school to university classes can be stressful for some students. There is usually considerably more reading and longer assignments that are required. Encourage them to attend the sessions at the Academic Centre of Excellence where they can develop skills to help them be successful in their academics. Also encourage your son or daughter to ask for help from their instructor before they get overwhelmed. All of the staff and faculty at St. Peter's College are committed to the success of our students.
