Parents (and other adult family members) who are interested in attending Orientation with their students are strongly encouraged to do so. The Family Orientation program is held concurrently with the student program; however, the family program is separate from the student program.
If your family would like to attend, there is also a cost associated with each adult attending. See the “Costs” section above for additional information.
Prior to attending the on-campus session, transfer students are required to complete a virtual orientation component. Directions on accessing this online course will be included in the confirmation packet. This component must be completed before attending the on-campus orientation session.
