Now that your student is a Corsair, you, too, are part of the UMass Dartmouth family.  The Office of New Student and Family Programs welcomes you to our community. We are so excited that your student has chosen UMassD, and we are looking forward to meeting you all. 

This year we will be shifting our orientation online to provide you and your student with the necessary connections, supports, and tools to be successful at UMassD. Virtually, we will be providing resources to you to help your student transition from high school to university life. 

Your Spring 2021 Family Orientation will be held on Wednesday, January 13th at 10am.  This will be a one-hour program providing an overview of what your spring semester will involve, touching on topics including COVID-19, academics, wellness, finance & the Family Association. There will also be time for Q & A with the Orientation staff.

This multi-faceted experience is a great resource for information for you both. While this experience has been created with your student in mind, we believe you will find it helpful as well. You can access the online orientation at any time and watch as many times as you need.
