    Parents and guests are welcome at Student Orientation, Advising & Registration! They will attend programs designed specifically for them, with topics that include financial aid, housing, safety, health and wellness and more.

    Because the transition to college can be a big change for the entire family, Student Orientation, Advising & Registration is an important part of the transition process. Parents and students will attend some sessions jointly and be separated for others. This separation allows us to customize the content you receive and allows students to take their first steps toward independence.
