The Parent Orientation is designed to teach parents everything they need to know to support the success of their student. The half day program will include:

  •      Representatives from Student Services
  •      Campus tour
  •      Residential Life and Commuter Life presentations
  •      Student Perspective on campus life
  •      Parenting a college first-year presentation

The Parent Orientation program is paired with student class registration and testing in efforts to encourage students and their parent(s) to come to campus together. 

Please note:

  • Parents register for Parent Orientation through this form.
  • Encourage your student to register for testing through their Blackboard account.
  • Students who attend earlier course registration and placement testing programs typically have more options when building their class schedule.
