Family Orientation costs $55.00 per attending adult (not including housing and meals – see below). Children under 18 are exempt from this fee. Family members must attend the same session as their student. This registration fee is all-inclusive, non-negotiable and non-refundable.
There are a limited number of family fee waivers for those who require financial assistance in order to attend. This waiver covers the $55.00 program fee, housing on campus for one night and the 2-day meal package (early arrival housing is not included). It is limited to one family member per student. Fee waivers are administered on a first-come, first-serve basis. To discuss a waiver, please contact us.
Your student will indicate the number of attending adults in the Orientation Reservation system when they register for their session. During registration they will also have to indicate if you will be staying on campus and having meals (50% of family participants opt in to the meal plan). Read on for Housing and Meal options.
Family Housing is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis. More information will be made available prior to the registration platform going live in February.
FAMILY MEAL COSTS
A 2-day family meal package is available per person (which includes lunch, dinner on the first day of the session, and brunch on the second day). A meal package for children under 10 is available at a decreased rate. Rates will be posted in February.
Since 95% of family attendees participate in all the sessions, most elect to purchase the meal package. Meal times are generally shared with students so families use this time to catch up with their student throughout the day.
Meals can also be purchased 'a la carte' at Orientation. If you plan to attend the program and are interested in meals, we highly recommend purchasing your plan ahead of time to prevent waiting in lines.
Please note: a detailed program schedule will be provided to you at check-in.
