Parents & Family Resources
Parents & Family Resources
Families of Queens students have access to a variety of resources and support services. After all, you’re a part of the Royal family, too. The support of parents and family members is essential to your college student’s success and we want to give you the tools to help you do that.
Selecting an academic program is a big decision. Is your student’s major undecided? That’s no problem! We’re not like the other gen eds. Our gen ed program includes learning communities. These are groups of classes that focus on examining one topic from various lenses. This allows students to develop a deep and real-world understanding of some of society’s most complex issues.
Admissions & Aid
Not all colleges and universities talk about cost the same way. But we figure that if you’re investing your hard-earned money, you deserve the transparent truth about price. Keep in mind that the “sticker” price isn’t always your final price. If you do your due diligence, and apply for financial aid, you may be pleasantly surprised by the financial support that’s available.
Looking for information about your student’s account or financial aid? We’ve compiled some of those parent-centric topics and resources just for you!

We could go on and on about all the fun things there is to do in Charlotte and you’ll be able to enjoy it when you visit, too.
Campus Police & Public Safety
Keeping everyone safe is our top priority. The Queens Campus Police & Public Safety Department is dedicated to upholding and enforcing the law and managing risks to ensure the safety of everyone at Queens. We strive to foster an approachable and protective environment where students, faculty, and staff can rely on us for a variety of safety and security concerns.
QAlert is the emergency notification system that we use to notify the campus community of an emergency, incident, inclement weather or class cancellations. Text, phone and email messages are sent through QAlert about the status of a given situation, as well as other important details.
Health & Wellness Center
We prioritize the well-being of our students—body, soul and mind. Queens has established a multi-year partnership with one of Charlotte’s esteemed healthcare providers—Atrium Health. Together, we’ll be able to offer on campus clinical services, counseling, preventive and sports medicine care for our students at the Health & Wellness Center.
From guest accommodations, to point contact information, to parking, be sure to check out the Commencement webpage to learn the details.
