Prepare for Orientation

Review the following components before you attend Family Orientation: 

  1. Read Information Guides
  2. Review Parent & Family Resources
  3. Join Facebook Discussion Group
  4. Review Family Engagement Opportunities

Students must register family members to attend the Family Orientation session in Zoom.

Read Information Guides 

We have two guides to support you and your student in their transition to the UW.   

Review Parent & Family Resources  

The family resources websites below are a great starting place to review information about the university structure and key topics as you support your student in their transition and prepare to attend the full-day Family Orientation session. 

Join Facebook Discussion Group 

Utilize this Facebook group to ask questions and get information from First Year Programs staff and other first-year families. After your student registers you for Family Orientation, you will receive an email with a link to access the discussion group.
