View the UW's response to COVID-19. Our services and staff are available remotely and by phone. Because of the on-going situation, Advising & Orientation sessions have moved to a remote platform. For more information, view our Remote Advising & Orientation Updates page. (updated 5/6/2020) 


Make Your Reservation

Like Parent Orientation facilitated on-campus, these remote sessions will allow participants to attend workshops and panels hosted by campus experts, ask questions, and interact with other parents and supporters of UW students. 

Your student remains responsible for reserving your seat at a remote Parent Orientation session. They will be able to make a reservation by clicking on the tab below. After your student makes a reservation, you will be sent a confirmation email containing information about how to access a detailed agenda specific to your Parent Orientation session. This detailed agenda will include all the Zoom links you will need to fully participate during your session.

Review our Technology Instructions for A&O to learn more about the technology and supplies needed during your A&O as well as detailed Zoom instructions. 

Additional opportunities to engage with UW will be communicated by the office of Parent & Family Programs through monthly email newsletters and events throughout the year.

No Additional Charge

Due to the current pandemic, there will be no additional charge to participate in the remote Parent Orientation program.  The fund balance from previous programs will subsidize the fees associated with facilitating the remote session for this year.
