Family members are critical partners in the development and well-being of their students. Whether entering college for the first time or transferring from one school to another; starting at a new place can be an experience that induces both excitement and anxiety for students and families. Our goal is to make sure that you have everything you need to refer your student to the right resource if he/she should need anything while he/she is here. You can pre-register for family orientation any time before August 15, 2015.
Family members are invited to participate in our Family Orientation program, which is separate from our Freshman Orientation and Transfer Orientation programs (you will not go through Orientation with your student). Family Orientation is designed to introduce you to your student's academic program, the resources and services at RIT, and other new RIT families. We invite you to preview the schedule for the 2014 program; the schedule for the 2015 program will be available starting in June. You will receive a hard copy when you check in for Family Orientation.
Please join our Facebook Group for parents of incoming first-year and transfer students to connect with RIT staff and other parents. This is a great resource for you to stay informed and up-to-date!
