Family Orientation

Orientation for Family & Friends...


Parent's Orientation


Going to a university is a tremendous experience for any student. But, at UHC we recognize it can also be a challenging time for the family and friends of the new student, especially for parents! That's why we have designed a special family orientation session for those who serve in a supporting role to new students.

Family orientation is for anyone who contributes to the support system for the university student. This can be the mother, father, sibling, other relatives, or a friend. Your new student will need plenty of support as they begin the emotional, academic, and financial responsibilities of going to University.

In your session, we will cover a variety of topics from FERPA (the Federal Educational Rights & Privacy Act), financing education, how to keep your student motivated, balancing your new role in your student's  life, and more. In our Q&A session, you will have the chance to ask questions and get the answers you need to feel more confident in helping your student stay in University, excel, and ultimately graduate!
