We’re in this together. 

Sending a student to college is a major life event—and we treat it as such. We are honored that you and your student are considering applying to Notre Dame. 

We see parents as partners, giving you every opportunity to get involved, stay informed, and have your questions answered. Below you’ll find links to resources that should answer the majority of your questions. If you’d rather contact us, don’t hesitate to call at 574-631-7505 or email admissions@nd.edu
