Virtual Family Orientation for Transfer Parents

Welcome to Hofstra's Family Orientation! Parents and family members of incoming students learn about transition to college and campus life through information sessions and interaction with staff and students. Please note that Family Orientation is separate from student orientation. Hofstra University is planning our summer orientation for incoming first-year students as an on-campus, three-day, two-night program.

To allow for two family members per student, Family Orientation, will take place in two sessions on the first day, Tuesday or the final day, Thursday. Family Orientation lasts one full day, 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Parents may choose to attend Family Orientation program, which is separate from student orientation, in person or virtually. Your student will register you for Family Orientation through the student portal at the same time and on the same form as they register themselves for the student orientation. We will then have your emails to inform you with the details and updates.

The Family Orientation program will include online sessions on wellness and safety, academic curriculum and advising, the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), life in residence halls, student and parent engagement programs, commuting student programs and services, and faculty expectations.
