Family Programs

This is a time of transition for you too, so we offer a program for parents and family members separate from the student program, with a session that prepares you to support your student. We hope to help make the UW Tacoma experience easy to understand and satisfying for your whole Husky Family.

Family Orientation

Saturday, September 19, 2015

Family Orientation is a day-long program designed to introduce you to the university and its resources for parents and family members. Family Orientation is not mandatory but we encourage all parents and families to attend.

There is a $10.00 fee for family or guests attending orientation. Currently, we do not have an online payment system but the fee can be paid in cash or check the day of orientation.
