Conversations to have with your STUDENT

Parent and Family Orientation Sessions

Since orientation is for new students only, we welcome parents, family and friends to your own orientation session because you play such an important role in your student's success! No RSVP is required. Topics include educational support resources, residency, financial aid, campus safety and much more! Talk to college administrators and faculty and have your questions answered! Choose the campus location and date that fits your schedule. The same information will be covered at all sessions.
