Family and Guests UTSA Family Orientation-Summer Orientation

Family Orientation is designed specifically for family members of incoming UTSA students. Parents, family members, and guests are encouraged to attend this separate Orientation Program to get an introduction to UTSA by focusing on academic success, student life, and Roadrunner spirit and traditions.

How to Register

Reservations for all Family Orientation programs are required prior to the program date and can be made by your student through their ASAP account. Family can only attend an orientation program for the term that their student was admitted/accepted for. Space is limited and is assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.

What to Expect

Family Orientation participants will have the opportunity to listen to, meet and speak with staff from various student service areas. Guests are assigned to their own Orientation Leader (OL) who will guide small groups of participants through a campus tour and informative sessions. In addition, our guests are provided with publications aimed at helping them learn about their students’ transition process at UTSA. Lunch is provided during the Family Orientation program.
