Parent Orientation

Parent Orientation is an opportunity to better understand the first-year experience at the UW. By attending Parent Orientation, you will work with faculty, staff, and administrators to identify personal strategies and behaviors that support your student's overall success at the University of Washington.

Per local and state guidance, many A&O programs, as well as Parent Orientation, will be facilitated remotely (online). Please view our "Remote Advising & Orientation Update" page for more information.
