PFO Online Registration

Parent & Family Orientation (PFO)

Parent and Family Programs invites you to a special summer orientation designed to help you prepare your new student for a successful transition to Long Beach State. Since 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. You will gain valuable information that will help you support your student's transition to the university. 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 experience at The Beach.

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 services and scholarships
  • Learn about student life, the Beach Family, and hear from current students
  • Have the opportunity to ask questions to better understand the university and how to support your student
  • Meet other Beach friends, family members, and supporters

PFO Dates and Registration Information

The program registration fee is $25 per guest. As part of your registration fee you will receive light refreshments, lunch (for PFO Sessions 1 & 2 only), and resource materials during the on-campus PFO session. Register for a PFO session by clicking on the gold Online Registration icon above.*

When possible, we encourage you attend Parent and Family Orientation (PFO) on the same day your student attends their Student Orientation, Advising, & Registration (SOAR) workshop. Feel free to contact SOAR to coordinate your student's SOAR workshop with your PFO session call (562) 985-5515 or email for assistance. Please note that you are not automatically registered for a PFO session when your student makes their SOAR workshop reservation. PFO registration is separate; please have your student's orientation date available when registering for PFO.
