Salisbury University students on campus

Parents & Family Members of Students Starting in 2021

Salisbury University is planning orientation programs for June and August. Sea Gull Start-Up (SU’s Summer Orientation program) will be happening virtually in June, students will receive communication in mid-late April to select their session. Salisbury University continues to watch the pandemic for how First Flight (SU’s Fall Welcome program) will be impacted; information will be communicated when it becomes available. Please check this page for future updates. With that in mind, students, parents, and family members can still expect a program containing content to view your academic course load, meet with advising, a checklist of things to take care of prior to their 2021 semester, engage and meet with peers and much more!
