New Student and Family Programs


Family Orientation

The Family Orientation program offers parents and family members the opportunity to learn about various campus services, policies and procedures, and also assists them in understanding the challenges their students may face. The goal of Family Orientation is to provide you with the information to help support your student as he/she transitions into the Winthrop community. At each full day Orientation session, family members have the opportunity to attend Family Orientation.

The schedule for Family Orientation can be found with the corresponding Freshmen Orientation or Transfer Orientation session schedule.
 

Freshman and Family Orientation 

Freshman Family Orientation is held concurrently during the first day of the Freshman Orientation sessions.  Students and families will arrive at Orientation together and then separate, branching off to their respective Orientations. Freshman Family Orientation will begin around 8:00 a.m. and end at approximately 5:00 p.m.

After your student has registered for Freshman Orientation, family members may register for Family Orientation through the student's Enrollment Checklist. The Freshman Family Orientation fee is $15 per person. Once you register online, your student's account will be charged your registration fees. Family Orientation fees are not refundable.
