Welcome to the Gettysburg College community. The Office of Alumni and Parent Relations provides practical information, events, and opportunities to help make your experience as a Gettysburg parent rewarding. At this point, we are asking you to complete the New Parent Dashboard to help get off to a great start.
New Parent Dashboard
This online tool gives you the means to:
- Verify we have your most up-to-date contact information, so you don’t miss important College communications,
- Enroll in our emergency text notification program, and
- Indicate your specific interests for further involvement with the College community.
New Parent Dashboard Timeline
The time to complete the New Parent Dashboard is between June 8 and June 26. It takes about fifteen minutes to complete. It is important to do this now. After June 26 the New Parent Dashboard no longer will be accessible to allow for information management within our systems.
Login to the New Parent Dashboard
You will receive information about how to login to the New Parent Dashboard on June 8. This information will come to you at the following email address:
If this is not your correct email address or if no email address appears above, please contact the New Parent Dashboard Help Desk at email@example.com or (717) 337-7699 by June 4. If we don’t have your current email address, we are unable to communicate important information to you.
One Letter to Every Parent/Guardian
Each parent or guardian is receiving this letter. We recognize that only one spouse/partner may choose to complete the New Parent Dashboard for the parents/guardians in your family. However, in the event that each parent/guardian would like to complete the dashboard separately, each of you will have a separate login and password.
The decision to complete the New Parent Dashboard for yourself only or for yourself and a spouse/partner is entirely up to you. We simply ask that information is verified and/or updated for all parents or guardians. Once you are logged into the New Parent Dashboard, instructions will guide you.
New Parent Dashboard Email Reminders
If you have not completed one or more sections of the New Parent Dashboard, we will send you at least one email reminder in June. If only one parent/guardian logs in and verifies and updates information for both parents/guardians, the parent/guardian who has not logged in will receive email reminders but may ignore them.
New Parent Dashboard Closes June 26
Once the New Parent Dashboard closes on June 26, you will not need to access it ever again. If you are looking for information about your student’s Gettysburg College bill, please go to the Student Accounts website. For other questions, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are delighted to welcome you to Gettysburg College, and we look forward to meeting you.
