Family Orientation

Main page content

At the University of Washington Tacoma, we understand how critical you are to the success of your student.

Family Orientation is a one-day program that occurs at the same time as your student's orientation program. While your student is being welcomed to their new home, parents and family members will attend their own activities and sessions that will help you succeed during this time of transition.

Welcome to the University of Washington Tacoma. Go Dawgs!
