Parent Orientation

Parent Orientation is planned so that while your son or daughter is registering for classes and becoming familiar with university life, you may attend discussion sessions with faculty and staff designed to acquaint you further with our mission, programs, and procedures. Specifically, the program includes a meeting with the dean of your student's college, a presentation about financial aid and meeting college costs, and a question-and-answer session with the directors of Residential Life, Public Safety, the Counseling Center, and many other offices, as well as with upperclassmen. 

A fee of $50 is required for each parent/guest who chooses to attend the parent program. This fee is not included in the Student Orientation/First-Year Experience fee. Parents who participate in the Parent Orientation program will be provided meals and materials, but not housing.  Check out lodging in the area.
