Fountain on Revelle PlazaParent & Family Orientation

Welcome new students, parents, and families! In light of the ongoing and changing environment due to COVID-19, we have reconstructed the Revelle College orientation experience for 2021. Mandatory programming events will take place exclusively online. We are continuing to offer a fun and informative orientation experience for everyone, including those who will be with us on campus and those starting remotely. We will also provide optional in-person opportunities as we are able.

Welcome Revelle College Parents & Family Members!

We know your important role in supporting your new Revelle College student. This is a big transition for you and your student! As partners in your student's educational experience, we offer a revamped Parent & Family Orientation. Get connected with Revelle College staff to get your questions answered.

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 Orientation Registration page at the end of COMPASS. 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. 

This year, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are offering Parent & Family Orientation completely online. the schedule is being determined.

Orientation will be pre-recorded and released a few days after completion. Because this is a virtual online orientation experience, there is no admission fee. We hope you'll join in to meet our Provost, Dean of Student Affairs, Dean of Academic Advising, and our student and faculty panelists as we answer your questions and offer help in supporting your Revelle College student.

After students complete their registration process, we will email family members a registration form. Please join us live online! See you then!

International Parent and Family Orientation Program

The International Students and Programs Office, in collaboration with the UC San Diego Parent and Family Programs Office, offers an optional International Parent and Family Orientation program. This program is separate from the Revelle College Parent & Family Orientation program.

Is your student a continuing student with questions or concerns?

We understand that many students who attended orientation previously may feel unprepared for returning to campus in the Fall. There will be plenty of opportunities to help transition back to campus! Triton Weeks of Welcome (TWOW) programs and events are designed to reintegrate students to UC San Diego campus. For more information, please direct your student to visit the Tritons Weeks of Welcome page and follow the Revelle College Instagram page @allthingsrevelle.
