Parent & Family Orientation Resources

Welcome to our Parent, Family, and Guest Resource Page. Below you will find pre-recorded presentations and a schedule of the live presentations all meant to provide you with the information to support your student with their transition to the University of Minnesota. We recognize your support and guidance is integral to your student’s success and therefore we want to provide you with the information to assist them.

We have structured this page to highlight the live sessions first followed by the pre-recorded sessions. Review these presentations at your leisure and make note of which of the live presentations you want to attend and mark them on your calendar.
