Parent and Family Resources

Welcome to the Villa Maria College! Parents and families play an important role in the lives of Villa Maria students so the entire College community shares your excitement in their acceptance. This page serves to answer some of the questions that are frequently asked by a student’s home support system. Consider this page a starting point. Each section provides the contact information for the person who is best suited to provide you with a more in-depth response. As always, feel free to reach out to your child’s admissions counselor. 

COVID Policies

The health and safety of our students, faculty, and staff remains the College’s paramount concern. At this time, masks are mandatory for everyone, regardless of vaccination status. Although vaccination is not mandatory, the College strongly encourages everyone to get vaccinated. Students who are vaccinated should submit proof of vaccination to villa.edu/vaccine; they will receive $25 in Bistro Bucks for doing their part to keep our community safe.

Villa Maria College will continue to monitor the evolving COVID-19 situation and will continue to take any action necessary to help keep the College community healthy.

For real-time updates, please visit villa.edu/coronavirus.
