Parents & Family Members of Students Starting in 2024

Orientation, Transition & Family Programs is excited to welcome our parents, families, and supporters into the Salisbury University Community! We view the relationship between SU and you as a partnership – one which puts the success of our students at the forefront. Our office strives to promote opportunities for families to engage with the University and other parents, families, and supporters, receive up to date communications through our Family Experience Portal, and participate in programming. 

Parent, Family & Supporter Orientation – Join your new student in the month of June for our Sea Gull Start-Up (in-person) program. You will have the opportunity to learn to navigate Salisbury University alongside your student through a separate orientation program geared towards YOU! Please note: Parent, Family & Supporter Orientation only runs throughout the month of June for those beginning their time at Salisbury University in the Fall semester.  

As part of January’s orientation program, families are invited to join their new Sea Gull for insightful and engaging informational sessions that will help your student navigate their college experience here at SU. Like our June programs, some of these sessions will be specifically geared towards Sea Gull parents and other family members. Please note: this Parent, Family & Supporter Orientation only runs throughout the month of January for those beginning their time at Salisbury University in the Spring semester.
