Parents and Family Members

Welcome to the Onondaga family! At Onondaga we understand that your student’s education journey is supported by you and others like you who are rooting for their success. Therefore it is important for you to understand how you can help Onondaga support your student. It is also a special invitation for you to learn about Onondaga and how college works. These pages intended to assist you with some of the more common questions and concerns most frequently asked by parents and family members.

There is a lot of information in these pages. Although we have attempted to address many of the frequently asked questions, you still may have questions. When that occurs, contact Student Transitions, Parent and Family Support. You can contact me at or call (315) 498-2491.

I look forward to taking the journey with you!
