Parent and Family Program at Orientation

Parent and Family Involvement at Orientation

Every UCCS orientation has a supplemental parent and family program designed to also help you, a parent, family member, or friend of the student, understand more about what UCCS has to offer your student, and what you can do to help.

Each orientation will begin with students and family members together for the first half of orientation. We will then separate students and guests for the second half of orientation to provide specific information for the different groups. While students are engaging in team building activities and registering for classes, parents and family members are engaged in a supplemental program intentionally designed to assist you with your own unique questions and concerns related to having your student go to college.

Parents and family members do not need to register to attend their student's orientation. On the reservation form, have your student list how many guests will be attending the orientation. Please note that no more than two guests per student are permitted due to space limitations. If your student needs to bring more than two guests, please email the Orientation Office (
