Family Orientation

A family at Family Orientation 2016

Welcome, Longhorn families of the Class of 2024! We're excited for you to join the Longhorn family.

The Texas Parents office, the Division of Student Affairs and the rest of the University of Texas at Austin community are pleased to present orientation programming to the parents and family members of our incoming freshman and transfer students.

We recognize the vital role that you as parents and family members play in your student’s successful transition to university life. It is important for you to gain knowledge that will reinforce a sense of family support in your student’s education. To achieve this, you are encouraged to attend Family Orientation, programming that will introduce you to the university and to resources that support your student’s successful transition to UT Austin.

Family Orientation is a separate day-long program where you'll learn about campus resources, hear from UT Austin Faculty & Staff and learn how to best support your Longhorn. Family Orientation is optional but highly recommended.
