For Parents

Saturday, October 7 – Family Day

Message from the Coordinator of Parent and Family Programs

Welcome Parents and families! We are thrilled to have you join our community. Here at Pratt, your student will engage in an exciting and traditional college experience, while studying with an award-winning faculty of practicing artists, architects, designers, writers and librarians who are committed to enhancing your student’s artistic and intellectual development.

My role at Pratt gives me the opportunity to serve you. I love to seek out new ways to connect families to each other, provide updates and reminders about important dates, and share information to support your student throughout their Pratt experience.  I encourage you to join our Facebook page, Pratt Institute Parents and Families, and to bookmark our web page, to stay up-to-date. If there is any way I can assist you, or you just want to say hello, please feel free to contact me.  I welcome the opportunity to speak with you.

Mission Statement

The mission of Parent and Family Programs at Pratt is to provide parents with the resources to support and encourage the success of their Pratt student. Pratt Institute recognizes that parents are valuable members of the Pratt community and have much to contribute to Pratt. We encourage parent involvement in the Pratt Community.

Parent Philosophy

  • Pratt seeks to develop a relationship with parents that is a partnership. We believe that parents are partners in our efforts to help our students become responsible advocates for themselves.
  • To further this partnership, we are committed to taking parent concerns into consideration when appropriate and for communicating with parents about events, deadlines and other information relevant to the Pratt student experience.
  • While we value the involvement of parents, we promote student responsibility. Therefore whenever possible we work directly with students in order to provide appropriate services, support them as they meet the challenges of the Pratt experience and respond to their concerns and questions.

Parent Access

As a parent of a Pratt student, you have access to many of the features of Pratt’s online networks from financial aid, billing, and payment to grades and notifications. All of the information is located under the link below entitled Self-Service at As soon as your student provides authorization for your access, it will be available to you.

Federal regulations mandate that access to student data is conditional based on student authorization. Students can allow relatives/sponsors to view their student information using the Self-Service Proxy module. The “View/Add Proxy Access” process empowers the student with the ability to add and rescind access to their student information. Once access is given or rescinded, you will be notified via your email specified on file. It is the responsibility of the student to ensure that this address is accurate.

Additional information and instructions can be found by students logging in with their Onekey here.
