About Parent and Family Orientation

Transitioning into college is one of the most exciting times of your student's life.  It can be both a thrilling and a challenging experience for parents or guardians.

Whether you are a parent or guardian of a first year or transfer student, the Parent and Family Orientation is designed to help you become familiar with DU, answer your questions about University resources and opportunities, and find out what to expect the first year. You will learn about academic policies and requirements, study abroad opportunities, campus safety, health and counseling services, financial aid, and much more!

Following Residence Hall Move-in on Sunday, August 31st, we invite all parents and family members of incoming students to stay for Parent and Family Orientation, Sunday, August 31st - Tuesday, September 2nd. The cost is $25 per person, which helps offset costs of meals and materials (children under 10 do not have to register).The entire Parent and Family Orientation schedule will be provided at a later date.

Programs during Orientation will take place in various locations across campus. If you need accommodations for Parent and Family Orientation due to a disability, please contact the Disability Services Program (DSP) at 303.871.2372 to discuss arrangements.
