Parents and Family Orientation


Parent and Family Orientation

We realize that parents and family members help students succeed in college and they are very important to UHD. In order to assist parents and family members with their transition to UHD, we offer parent and family orientation during some of our freshman orientation programs. You may attend any of the other orientations with your new UHD student; however, these two dates are tailored for students who want to attend orientation with their parents and or families.

The parent and family orientation is designed to give family members valuable information on UHD. Parents and students will be together for some orientation activities such as lunch and departmental presentations but you will have an opportunity to enjoy special sessions to address the concerns and needs of your educational investment while students participate in activities with current and future students.

Parents and family members attending parent and family orientation will pay a fee of $40 for the first family member and $25 for each additional family member accompanying each student. This orientation fee is non-refundable. This fee must be paid before you attend your scheduled Orientation.  The fee covers meals and all orientation materials. A freshman student is allowed to bring up to three parents or guests to orientation. Please make sure that you make all cancellations and updated to your reservation by the designated deadline.

We do not charge for family members and guests 7 years old and younger, HOWEVER, they will count towards your 3 guest maximum.

Please help us by encouraging your students to choose their guests wisely before signing up for orientation. Parents and guests do not spend the whole day with their students during orientation!

All programs will close one week before each program for preparation purposes (see registration deadlines). You cannot register for a program after the registration deadline. If you need to reschedule your orientation program or add/cancel guests, you must do so online by the cancellation/updates deadline of your scheduled orientation program.

If you have to make changes to your reservation after the cancellations/updates deadline, you must contact the orientation office by phone or email for assistance (no changes can be made online after that deadline). Reschedules made after that deadline will pay a $20 rescheduling fee for rescheduling.



All reschedules for freshman students made after the program deadline will pay a $20 rescheduling fee for all orientation programs changed. Your freshman students do not have to change their orientation date if their guest(s) will no longer attend orientation with them.  All additional guests added to the reservation after the registration deadline will pay an additional $10.00 guest walk in fee (this includes a guest walk in the day of orientation).
