How does my student find a doctor in the area?
Students can go to Health Services, located in Adams Center, and the nurse practitioner will help them find an area physician. There is a physician on campus each day; contact Adams Center at 903.813.2247 for more information.
I would like to see my student’s grades – can they be sent to me?
Semester grades are not mailed but are posted on the student’s Webhopper page. You can ask your student to take you to that page to see grades. Password is required.
If you have questions that are not answered here or elsewhere on the Austin College website, please call Student Affairs at 903.813.2228 or send an email to Karen Spore.
