Parents, you play an important role in your studentís continued development - regardless of their physical location.  You, more than anyone else, will be a witness to your son or daughterís challenges, frustrations and successes as they navigate their college years.  Parent orientation is designed to help ease your mind.

What to expect

Orientation will serve as an introduction to the University of Michigan-Dearborn and assist you in preparing for the adjustments, challenges and new demands you and your student will face in the coming years. We strongly encourage all parents of new incoming students to participate in this Orientation.  During the program, parents will be able to:

  • Learn about student services available on campus
  • Develop an understanding of academic program requirements
  • Talk with Academic Advisors and Orientation Leaders
  • Ask questions about student life and financial aid
  • Browsing Fair
