Transfer Parents and Families

New Student Orientation dates occur between July 14-July 24, plus an additional date in August. In conjunction with New Student Orientation, our goal is to provide parents and family members of incoming students 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.

Orientation resources will be available for parents and family members of incoming students starting on June 3rd. These resources will provide a solid introduction to the University departments that are vital to a student's transition, as well as the academic expectations of the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities. Please return to this page for those resources.
