    New this year, we will be offering a more detailed Parent Orientation that will coincide with our two day Freshman Orientation ($50). 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 have a limited number of on-campus lodging ($40 a night) for parents and guests attending Parent Orientation. Please contact us at 205-652-3578 to reserve a room on-campus. Also 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.

    Parent orientation will be held in conjunction with your student’s orientation. While there are some sessions where you are with your student, most of the sessions are separated.
