Orientation costs for parents and guests

Cost to attend Parent Orientation

The cost for students to attend is included in their student fees. The program fee for a parent and other guests varies for each session (see below) and the cost includes:

  • meals for all days of the session
  • helpful calendar with important campus dates
  • reusable grocery bag to carry your handouts, etc.

The cost listed below includes a $5 non-refundable processing fee:

  • Freshman two-day summer session: $50
  • Transfer & Non-Traditional Student one-day summer session (including April): $20
  • Freshmen AND Transfer one-day session for November and January: $15

The cost does not include overnight accommodations. Those arrangements should be made on your own either through our on-campus Summer Visitor Housing (option only available May through mid-August) or an off-campus hotel option.
