Your son or daughter will be entering more than just a school this
fall — he or she will be entering a community. CSU, Chico will become your son's or daughter’s home away from home. Parents play an important role in students’ transition to their new home and in their success in college, so we offer an orientation program designed to support you as you support your student.
Our Parent/Guest Program runs concurrently with our Student Program. It includes separate activities, workshops, and presentations which provide information and resources that will enable you to help your son or daughter throughout his or her years at CSU, Chico. We encourage you to support your student and share in their discovery of Chico by attending the Parents’ Program at Summer Orientation.

Please Note: The Parent/Guest program is not designed for siblings or children. Please arrange childcare in advance.
If you are unable to attend the orientation or would like to review the orientation information, please make sure to visit the Parent Orientation page to access workshop videos.
