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.
