Fall Parent and Family Orientation

Congratulations on your student's acceptance to the University of San Diego!

This is a very exciting time for you and your family as your student embarks on his or her journey at USD! This is not only a time of transition for your student, but also a transition for parents, family members and supporters.

We highly encourage parents and families to take part in all Parent Orientation has to offer! Come help your student get settled, meet USD administrators, get your questions answered and learn all about being a Torero! In particular, the information and insider tips provided at the conference-style sessions on Saturday, Aug. 27, are useful to supporting your student’s USD experience.

The transition is different for first-year students and transfer students so we have specific orientation programs planned to help meet your separate needs:
