Parent & Family Orientation

Although not mandatory, we highly encourage all parents or guardians supporting First-Time Freshmen to participate in Parent & Family Orientation. The program is designed to assist parents' understanding of the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, our academic programs, and student services. In addition, the program is structured to help you understand your student's transition into college life and how you can best support your student through those transitions.

Registration Information

Parent & Family Orientation registration is completed in conjunction with student registration.  Have your student click on the guest tab within the orientation registration system and they can add up to 2 guests.
