Marymount College understands the important role parents play in their student’s college experience.
We try to partner with parents to provide the support that students and their families need. If you need assistance with issues within the classroom, feel free to contact the Office of Academic Affairs. If you need assistance with issues outside the classroom, feel free to contact the Dean of Students Office.
As we welcome your student into the Marymount community, we also welcome your family as new members of our community. Marymount believes that students are well served by continued support and involvement from their family while in college and we strive to include you when possible. Marymount is committed to your student’s success and have extensive programs and services in place to support students. As your student begins his or her collegiate experience, there will be many significant changes in your life and theirs. We hope our parent handbook serves as a resource for your family as you experience these changes.
Throughout the academic year, you may have questions about Marymount or your student’s experience. If your student is not able to find the answers you need, please give me a call or email me.

When your university has vision, anything is possible.
With a visionary focus on the future, Marymount California University literally is growing and changing every day. In just the past few years, our institution has expanded its range of four-year and graduate programs, added two dynamic campus locations, attained university status and announced an exciting new name.
What hasn’t changed, however, are the values we’ve held from the beginning. As a Catholic university, we are as committed to serving others as we are to student success. We welcome learners of all backgrounds, experiences and ages, and we expect our students to create positive changes in the world. Our vision is built on the hopes and dreams of each individual Marymount California student. We see what’s possible for you, and it looks amazing.
