Parent & Family Orientation

Parent and Family Programs (PFP) invites you to a special summer orientation that is geared toward helping you prepare your new student for a successful transition to CSULB. Because this time can be both exciting and challenging for the entire family, we offer a corresponding orientation program designed to complement your student's orientation experience. For your convenience, we have also designed an evening and Saturday program. Regardless of which day you attend, you will gain valuable information that will help you support your student's transition to CSULB. We are dedicated to connecting you with the right resources to support your student's success and ensure that the entire family can participate in a truly remarkable CSULB Experience.

By attending PFO you will:

  • Learn about the University from staff and administrators
  • Learn about resources available to support your student's needs and success
  • Learn about Financial aid, financial services, and scholarships
  • Learn about student life at CSULB, and hear from current CSULB students
  • Have the opportunity to ask questions to better understand the University and how to support your student
  • Meet other CSULB families

Program Overview and Registration Information

For your convenience, we have designed three different Orientation schedules. You will have the option to register for the program that works best for you. The Weekday and Saturday program registration fee is $50 for the first guest and $40 for the second. The Evening program fee is $35.

When possible, we encourage you attend Parent and Family Orientation (PFO) on the same day your student attends their Orientation. Please note that you are not automatically signed up for PFO when your student registers for their Orientation.
