Resources and Information for Our Parents/Guardians

Transitioning into college or from one college to another can be overwhelming for new students.  SUNY Old Westbury recognizes and values that our parents/guardians are critical partners in helping to ease these transitions.  

Summer 2021

The Orientation Office will be hosting two Parent Orientations via ZOOM. For first time to college students, we ask your students for your email so we can contact you directly.  If you are unsure if we received your email, please send an email to

If your native language is Spanish, we plan to have a link with comparable presentations to the live ZOOM sessions available over the summer.  Please contact us and we can send you these links once it is live!
