Family Orientation

Bridgewater State University encourages family members of our new first-year and transfer students to attend Family Orientation. Family orientation is separate from your student's orientation, and for convenience they are offered during the month of June and August. 

For family members of first-year students, the June family orientation is offered on the first day of your student's two-day overnight orientation program, with an August session for those who cannot make June.  

Family members of new transfer students may attend any of the five sessions in June separate from your student, or may opt to attend in August when your student is expected to attend the Transfer Welcome. 

Due to space and material constraints, we ask that parents register for Family Orientation in advance. The cost to attend Family Orientation is $15 per person. We seek to keep the cost of this important program as affordable as possible while providing a quality program that will provide you with necessary information to support your student's transition to college.
