Family Orientation

Now that your student is a Corsair, you, too, are part of the UMass Dartmouth family. We look forward to meeting you at our August 30, 2017 Orientation: a one-day abbreviated program based on the June 2-day Orientation.

Family members: begin your sessions at 8am and be free after 10:30am. We will have a family reception, university welcome, and a finance session for all family members, at no charge.

New first-year students: check-in at 8am and complete orientation by 3pm.

New Student Orientation is required for all incoming students, but Family Orientation is not mandatory.

What to bring

Be sure to pack comfortable clothes and walking shoes, your questions, and your sense of humor. Your Orientation Leaders have some wonderful things planned. Be ready for icebreakers and other surprises.

Please note

If your student has a placement test on the morning of Orientation, s/he must check in for Orientation first. We'll transport students to placement testing after they check in.

You do not need a campus parking decal to participate in Family Orientation.
