Parents and Families

Your involvement is paramount to the success of your student at Suffolk University. We are here to direct you to the right resources so that you can help your student succeed.

As a family member of an incoming first-year or transfer student, you may have questions about how to navigate campus, submit tuition payments, or stay on top of campus calendars and policies.

You may also be thinking about how this new transition will affect your relationship with your student, and how to provide the support they need in an effective way. The Office of Orientation & New Student Programs encourages all family members of incoming undergraduates to attend our Family Orientation as an introduction to resources and programs available to you.

Family Orientation is a two-day event held on the same dates as New-Student Orientation. Interested families can register for family orientation through their student’s account on the MySuffolk portal.
