First Year Students

Parents and Families

Parents and family members play an important role in their student's transition to the University of the South Florida.  We recognize the support you need as well, so we have created a separate and concurrent program just for you.  The program gives you the information you need, while also providing helpful information on assisting in your student's success.

Family members who attend the Orientation session will receive an electronic confirmation packet (in PDF form) via email after the reservation is confirmed. This e-confirmation packet will include detailed information about the session and necessary arrival information, including a parking permit. An official & final schedule will be provided upon check-in.

While we encourage family members to attend, those unable to or choose not to, should look at the resources throughout this site and at the University of South Florida Parents page.

ADA Accommodations
If you require ADA accommodations to attend Orientation, your student will see the option to complete a form during the reservation process. If the link was missed or your situation has changed since the time of reservation, you can still submit a request. All requests should be submitted 10 days in advance of the session.
