Parent and Family Orientation
While new students are engaged in their orientation session, parents and family members are also invited to attend Parent and Family Orientation during the summer.
Parent and Family Orientation is a time for you to learn about NCCU and how to support your student's success during the college experience. Orientation activities are designed to provide family members with the resources needed to support their new Eagle. Family members are an important part of student success, and with an appropriate support system, you can help your new Eagle soar to new heights!
Expect to attend information sessions with representatives from offices such as the Student Rights and Responsibilities, University Police, Student Health and Counseling, The NCCU Parents and Family Association, and more.
Please Note: For safety and security reasons, parents and family members are unable to tour the residence halls during New Student Orientation. Parents and family members are able to visit a room in Eagleson Residence Hall on Friday afternoons when their students are checking out.
Students and parents register for orientation using the same online registration form.
