Family and Guests UTSA Family Orientation-Summer Orientation

Family members and guests who attend on-campus Summer Orientation will shadow their student as they complete the days' activities, take care of campus business and attend various breakout sessions. They will have the opportunity to learn information about academic policies and procedures, financial aid, advising and much more.

Space is limited, therefore, registration before the orientation date is required. When your student reserves his/her on-campus orientation through their ASAP account, they will have the option to add a family member or guest.
