Parents Guide

Congratulations on your student’s decision to study abroad! The Providence College Center for Global Education (CGE) is committed to offering high-quality study abroad programs to our students, and we recognize the important role parents and families often play in supporting their students through the process of participating in an education abroad program.

One of the primary goals of the CGE is to foster in our students the independence and responsibility necessary to be successful abroad. Therefore, we consider students to have the primary responsibility for keeping their families informed of their plans and for sharing information related to study abroad. All communication is sent purposefully only to the students. We ask for your assistance in encouraging this independence by appointing your student as the primary contact with the CGE. We look forward to working with you and your student before, during, and after the time spent on study abroad.
