Office of New Student Orientation

Parent and Family Orientation


We would like to start by saying how proud we are that your student has chosen to attend the University of North Florida! On behalf of UNF, we welcome your student and look forward to working with your family.

At UNF, we feel parents and families play a vital role in their student’s college success. During Parent and Family Orientation, you will learn about UNF and the many programs available to your student. Our faculty, staff and student leaders welcome the opportunity to meet and discuss all aspects of your student's enrollment with you.

Parents and family members who plan to attend Parent and Family Orientation should register for the same session dates as their student. New student orientation is mandatory for incoming students, and while it is not mandatory that parents or family members attend orientation, we highly encourage you to sign up to gain valuable insight into your student's future at UNF.
