Welcome to our Duquesne family!

The years that your student spends on our Bluff will be some of their most memorable and influential. This is an exciting time, full of many triumphs, and we are here to support your family from day one through graduation and beyond.

As a Duquesne parent, you want to make sure your student is attending an institution known for academic excellence, but also one that will be a supportive second home. Rest assured that the decision to attend Duquesne is a smart one.

Duquesne Parents and Families Portal

Parents and families are encouraged to join the Duquesne Parents and Families Portal for the latest University news, events, access to important campus deadlines and to request FERPA permissions. This online portal is the best way to stay connected with your student and Duquesne. And a way to get application, events and other important information if your student is interested in attending Duquesne.
