& Guests


This time can be both exciting and challenging for the entire family, we offer a corresponding half-day program designed to complement your student's orientation experience. We recognize this may not be the first Parent Orientation you have ever attended but our goal is to provide parents and guests with valuable information that will help you support your student's transition into the University of Minnesota. Research shows that when family members understand the college experience and resources available on campus to their students and themselves, students are more successful.

By attending Parent Orientation, you will :

  • address timely and relevant questions and concerns

  • have the option to talk one-on-one with a One Stop counselor about financial aid, tuition, and billing

  • send an important message to your student that you’re supportive in their education and want to be involved

  • Get In Touch

    If you have any questions regarding Student Orientation or Welcome Week. We would be happy to answer your questions.
