Parent & Family Orientation

If you would like to join your student as a guest at orientation, please have your student add you as a guest when they register. Remember that orientation is mandatory for your student, but not for parents or families of DePaul students. If you would like more information on our orientation program and Frequently Asked Questions and accommodation information, please visit the orientation page.

Parent & Guest Program

We invite and encourage parents, spouses, and primary supporters to attend orientation. The Parent & Guest Program is designed specifically to provide students' primary supporters with the resources necessary to successfully support their student.

Students can register up to two guests to accompany them at Premiere or Transition DePaul. It is important to note that the Parent & Guest Program runs concurrently to the student program, with some sessions together and some sessions separate.

Premiere DePaul is a two-day on-campus experience. Check-in on day one is from 11:30am-12:45pm and day two will conclude by approximately 4:30pm. For a glimpse of our program schedule for parents and family members, please click here.
