Fountain on Revelle PlazaParent & Family Orientation

Welcome Revelle College Parents & Family members!

Special Notice: We’re upgrading our Orientation Program for next year. The information found below only applies to the first-year class of 2023. Dates, times and fees subject to changes.

We know what a large role your play in supporting your new Revelle College student. This is a big transition for you too! As such, we offer a Parent & Family Orientation on the dates listed below. Learn about student life, academic advising, billing services, safety, counseling and psychological services, and faculty. We’ll have specially trained orientation leaders to guide you throughout the program.

While Parent & Family Orientation is not mandatory, it is highly recommended.

If parents and family members are interested in attending, their Revelle student must invite them through the New Student Site. After the student registers, an email invitation to register for Parent and Family orientation will be sent to the email provided. The email invitation does not confirm registration!  Parents and family members must complete their registration separately from students. Family members are encouraged to attend the same session date as their student, but this is not required.

Participants in the Parent and Family Orientation program follow a separate schedule from students. Activities include sessions with the Revelle College Provost, Dean of Academic Advising, Dean of Student Affairs, current students, and representatives from key on-campus departments.

Parent & Family Orientation Session Fees

The fee includes two meals, the Revelle College Guidebook app, and complimentary parking.

Each participant will be charged $80 during the registration process. Payment must be received for you to register. Space is limited so please register by the deadline.
