Each Orientation Program offers a concurrent parent/supporter session that your student can register you for.  During the programs you will be separated from your student and will receive your own schedule of sessions to attend. To view dates, visit the page associated with your student (First-Year Student or Transfer Student). There is a $50 fee that is added to the student account for each supporter who attends the program.
