• Can My Parents Attend
  • Can my parent attend UWA Orientation?

    Though parents are not required to attend orientation, all parents and/or guardians of incoming students are invited to attend Orientation free of charge. Parents are provided with information on student services, expenses, and how to assist their student in transitioning to college. You also have the opportunity to meet with selected faculty members and meet current UWA students.

    We are unable to provide on-campus lodging for parents and guests attending Parent Orientation. To assist parents with their accommodations, the University has a provided a list of hotels located close to campus. We recommend that you contact a hotel at least two weeks in advance.

    The Spring 2016 freshman/transfer parent session will be held in conjunction with the regular UWA Spring Orientation session. Parents and students should check-in at the Bell Conference Center between 9:00-9:15 am.
