Family Members: Students are encouraged to register their family members for the Family Orientation program. Family Orientation allows parents, partners, grandparents, and other supporters of first-year students to collect the information and skills necessary to support your student.
A&O one or two-day sessions and Family Orientation will be hosted live on Zoom. We will also have optional on-campus programming throughout your transition and during Dawg Daze, UW’s autumn welcome week.
