Orientation for Your UMass Lowell Student

For more information on student orientations sessions please visit the first-year student orientation webpage or the transfer student orientation webpage.

Your student does not need to attend Family Orientation with you. Family Orientation is geared towards parents and family members of incoming students, but not the students themselves. Some parents and family members may not feel comfortable discussing certain topics around their own or other students. We want everyone to be able to get their questions and concerns answered in an open environment.
