Parent and Family Member Orientation Registration
Effectively parenting a college freshman can be complicated, whether the student is a new freshman or a transfer student facing transition. Therefore, the IUP Spring/Summer Parent and Family Orientation Program is committed to providing parents and families with the information necessary to help facilitate student successes in and transition to college. We hope you join us!
Parent and Family Orientation takes place simultaneously with the two-day freshman student program or the one-day transfer student Orientation program. The Parent and Family Program focuses on helping families to better understand their student’s transition to adulthood, the university system and its resources, and college life—both inside and outside of the classroom. (Please note that the student program and the parent and family program are intentionally separate. Students and their parents and family members do not see each other during the programs, as a Student Orientation Program focus is to have students begin to understand their increased responsibility as college students at IUP.) There is a fee of $50 per person for the optional Parent and Family Orientation payable when you register. This fee covers all staffing, printing, postage, operations, materials, and refreshments throughout the program.
Parent Orientation typically includes the following topics:
Families will receive more information about the Spring/Summer Orientation Program through the mail after payment of the tuition deposit; mailings typically begin in mid-March.
