The beginning of a freshman student's collegiate experience at Stanislaus State is an exciting time in the lives of both students and families. It is also a time filled with questions and concerns regarding your child's upcoming transition to college. For this reason, we offer an orientation just for parents and families.  At orientation, presenters will cover topics ranging from  academics, career services, financial aid, graduation requirements, housing, campus safety. In addition, this is a great opportunity to connect with faculty and staff!

Additional Program Information:

  • A student must register each parent or family member when registering for their own New Student Orientation.
  • Parent and Family Orientations are only offered to parents of first-year students during the summer.
  • To attend, a $50.00 fee is required, per parent/family member, which includes a lunch and covers costs of materials. Payment can be made online.
  • The maximum guests allowed per student are two and no children (anyone under to age of 21) are allowed at Parent and Family Orientation.
