The University's platform for emergency or urgent communication is  It is advisable to have your student add your contact information to their account for KatSafe notifications and/or monitor the website anytime you have a question regarding the University's response to emergency situations.  


At SHSU we understand the importance of working with parents as a part of a student's support team and network.


Our mission is to partner with parents and family members of SHSU students to encourage academic achievement and personal development.  We recognize that informed, involved parents contribute to student success and retention.

Vision & Values:

We will facilitate communication between the university and parents. Together with the help of the University community we are here to serve you.  Whether you have a question about a specific department, student support services, deadlines, or want to know more about SHSU, we are here to serve you.

The SHSU Parents' Association (SHSUPA) is a great way to stay connected to your student and be involved.
