Family Orientation

Thank you for attending the Family Orientation 2021 webinar series! Recordings of sessions are available below.

What is Family Orientation?

Family Orientation 2021 will be a series of 1-2 hour webinars taking place throughout July and August highlighting different topics related, and designed to welcome families to the University of Alberta and prepare them for the transition to university life. The webinar series features informational sessions and activities to equip families with the resources and supports necessary for student success. As a resource associated with Family Orientation, we will also have a free, digital version of our Family Handbook that includes more in-depth information about services and resources that are offered by the university.

For Family Orientation 2021, there will be no cost associated with registration for any sessions of the Family Orientation webinar series.

For Families

Families will be introduced to the University of Alberta community and will learn how to best support their student. Sessions focus on student wellness, student finances, residence life, student services, and more! Parents will also receive a virtual campus tour and get access to an online Parent Manual. Family Orientation also features a panel of diverse students who will be able to answer questions and provide insights on what your student can expect from their UAlberta Experience!
