Transition Programs

Parents and Families

There is a separate program for adult family members that runs concurrently with the new student Orientation sessions. During the Family and guest Orientation Program, there are information sessions designed especially for family members, as well as sessions that families will attend with their students. However, because of space limitations and other concerns, several of the student sessions, such as Academic Advising, must be attended by the students only.

Sample Family & Guest Schedule

All Transfer sessions are one day for students, family members and guests. All schedules are subject to change. Orientation is only required for students and is OPTIONAL for family members and guests. If attending, you will receive a copy of the schedule at check-in.
