First-Year Family Orientation 2020

When your student begins their journey at Carnegie Mellon University, the whole family experiences transition and change. We are here to support family members in addition to our new students. Family Orientation provides the opportunity to learn more about the university experience and resources available to your first-year student.

Family Orientation will be available as an online program only with synchronous sessions scheduled on Sunday, August 23. Family members who are listed by their undergraduate student in Student Information Online (SIO) will automatically be enrolled in the Family Orientation program in Canvas and emailed instructions on how to access the content.
