Parent/Guardian Orientation Sign-up Starts Mid-April 2017

Fall Admits:

New UConn freshmen and transfer students may submit a reservation on behalf of their parents or guardians who wish to attend Parent/Guardian Orientation through the same online reservation form that they use to sign up for their Freshman or Transfer Orientation program.

The “Parent/Guardian Orientation Sign-Up” section in the reservation form is where students should sign up their parents and guardians for Parent/Guardian Orientation, which occurs during the summer months.

Parents/guardians will automatically be assigned to attend the Parent/Guardian Orientation program that occurs on the same day(s) as their son or daughter. Parents/guardians who wish to attend a session that is on a different day due to scheduling conflicts should work with their student during the reservation process to select a session that the parent/guardian can attend.

 

Spring Admits:

The Parent/Guardian Orientation is offered only during the Mid-May through Mid-July Orientation period. There is no Parent/Guardian Orientation program offered in December/January. If your student will be entering the University in January, you are still welcome to attend the Parent/Guardian Orientation program offered from Mid-May to Mid-July. For more information, contact the Orientation Office in May 2017.
