Learning alongside your student

College is an opportunity for learning - new concepts, with new people, in new ways. And that’s not limited to the students. We encourage you to learn alongside your student with our free, online class, Forever Humboldt Families 101.

The nine-week course is designed for new family members to learn how to support their student while at HSU. As part of the course, you'll get a free book for you and a Humboldt State sweatshirt for your student when you finish.

Topics include transitioning into the first semester, getting involved in clubs and other activities, seeking academic support, and enjoying Humboldt’s beautiful outdoors. You will also learn more about financial aid, find important housing resources, and learn about HSU’s commitment to keeping your student safe and healthy.

Visit to sign up for Forever Humboldt Families 101.

Also on the website, you will find Parent & Family guides on a variety of important topics that will help you help your student navigate the complexities of college.

Seismic retrofit

Your student may notice some changes when they return to campus this year. The Library and Theatre Arts buildings are undergoing a seismic retrofit that is scheduled to be completed by Fall 2019.

During that time changes will include the closure of parts of the Library, full closure of the Theatre Arts building, relocation of some classrooms and programs, and temporary construction buildings on the Campus Events Field. Some campus roadways and walkways will be fenced off, changing accessibility routes.
