For Parents

South Alabama Entrance Sign


The health and safety of our students, faculty and staff is our highest priority, and we continue to closely monitor the evolving coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. For updates on the University’s response to COVID-19, click here. 

Following CDC guidelines regarding in-person gatherings, we will continue to hold online orientation sessions combined with smaller in-person events until it is deemed safe to do otherwise. 

We know you have questions, so we are offering online parent orientation sessions via Zoom. During these sessions, we cover topics such as student life on campus, safety and health, academic success and career services, student financial services, housing, counseling services and more. Check back for details and opportunities to register.

If you are looking for more information, please feel free to browse our parent handbook below. It contains checklists, contact information for various departments and general information about sending your child to college.
