Although not mandatory, we highly encourage all parents or guardians supporting First Time Freshmen to attend Parent Orientation. Parent Orientation is designed to assist parents' understanding of the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, its academic programs, and its student services. In addition, the program is structured to help you understand the transition of your student and how you can best support your student through those transitions.
Spring Parent Orientations occur on the same day as our one-day Student Orientation sessions.
|Orientation Session||Orientation Date|
|Spring Session||November 21, 2017|
|Late Spring Session||January 4, 2018|
Online registration for Spring 2018 Parent Orientation is available through the student orientation registration process.
