Parent & Family Orientation Program

2019  UW Bothell Parent & Family Orientation




There is a $50 fee per parent/guardian to attend. Any changes to your Parent Orientation registration should be made no less than 2 weeks prior to the orientation date to avoid charges. Any changes made passed the 2 week cancellation period will be charged the $50 fee. No Shows will also be charged the $50 fee.


Note: Students will register parents/guardians who are attending when they register for their orientation session.

Students and families will each have a specific orientation session to attend. Attending college is often one of the first steps into adulthood. Part of this transition involves students making some of these important decisions on their own. Unlike high school, the responsibility will more readily fall on the student for making these decisions. We have created sessions for parents to assist their students in their transition to college and adulthood. The Parent Orientation program is designed to address the specific questions that parents have.  Parents will learn about the many resources and services as well as the logistics of financial aid and paying tuition. In addition, parents will get tips on how they can support their student while they face the rigors of a university education. 

The Parent Orientation program at the University of Washington Bothell provides parents/guardians with resources to help their students transition to their first quarter at the university. Each Parent Orientation is open to parents/guardians of both first year and transfer students.

Check-in begins at 9:00 a.m. and the program ends at approximately 3:00 p.m. Lunch is provided.

The Parent Orientation session will include information on the following services:

  • Student Fiscal Services
  • Campus Security
  • Discovery Core Program & Advising
  • Current Student Panels
  • Money Management
  • Campus Computing
  • Housing
  • Disability Resources
  • Student Health & Wellness
  • Student Life

Check-in location, times, parking, and other important information will be provided in your confirmation email after you register for an orientation session.
