New Student Orientation

All New Student Orientation programs will be conducted online until further notice. There is no guest fee for online participation with your student. If you have already paid the $75 fee and your orientation program has been changed to online, it will be refunded.

If you would like to receive information about your student’s New Student Orientation, ensure that they provide an active email address for you as they register for New Student Orientation.

If your student registered you as a family member or guest for their New Student Orientation program and provided your email address as a part of the registration process, you should receive a confirmation email with day-of details for New Student Orientation, including the link to attend.

 

 

Family Orientation

During Family Orientation, you will: learn ways to support your student as they transition to ASU; engage with staff and get your questions answered; connect with your student’s academic college; and discover opportunities and resources available to ASU families.

Step One: Register for Family Orientation

Once you attend New Student Orientation with your student, register to attend Family Orientation. If you’re unable to attend one of these sessions, or want to attend New Student Orientation with your student first, check back often; more sessions will be added throughout the summer.

If your student is in Barrett, the Honors College, we suggest registering for a Family Orientation session that indicates a Barrett, the Honors College Family Welcome session is occurring. You will receive details about how to join this session one day prior to your Family Orientation
