Make the Most of Your Parent & Family Orientation Experience

Parent & Family Orientation is an opportunity for you to learn more about the St. Edward's experience. It is the shared responsibility of students, faculty, staff, family and friends to make a student’s educational journey successful. We invite you to partner with us in supporting your student. This year, orientation for parents and family members will be a series of online webinars that are free of cost to St. Edward's parents and family members. Please see the links at the bottom of this page to register for any of the offered sessions you wish to attend. For 2020 Orientation, there is no fee for the parent and family orientation sessions.


As you know, recent circumstances around the country and the world have required every organization to re-think upcoming events that involve community gatherings. At St. Edward’s University, this includes our Summer Orientation program. To ensure the health and safety of every student, parent, faculty and staff member in our community, we've made the decision to move Summer Orientation online.

This decision was not easy for us to make, but we know it’s in our students’ best interest. If your student makes the exciting choice to join the St. Edward’s University Class of 2024, we want you to know that we're committed to giving your student the best Orientation experience possible. The New Student Orientation team is thinking creatively and working hard to develop an online orientation that’s fun, informative, and inspiring.
