Orientation Family Program


Family members play a vital role in a student’s successful transition to university life and should be fully informed about UC Santa Cruz and its resources and services.

The Family Orientation session is designed to assist family members in gaining knowledge and developing skills that will reinforce a sense of family support in their student’s education.

When are the family sessions offered during orientation?

One-day frosh and transfer programs: Family Orientation runs concurrent, but separate from the Student Orientation.

Accommodation needs (e.g., language, physical, or dietary limitations) should be noted when making your orientation reservation.
