Parent and Family Orientation

Parent and Family KSU Orientation

We consider Parent and Family Orientation important to a student’s successful transition to college. During Parent and Family Orientation we will help you become acquainted with campus services and resources, discuss how to best support your student through their transition to college, and provide you with resources you’ll use for the entirety of your student’s first year at Kennesaw State University.

How do I register for Parent and Family Orientation?
