If you’re interested in attending Family Orientation, we suggest that you register at the same time as your student by adding a family member to their registration when completed (access to your student’s admission applicant portal is required). You can also go back into the registration system to add additional family members or change names of attending family members at any time. There is a $40 fee per attending family member for our orientation programs, which will be collected upon registration. This fee covers the cost of materials, lunch on both days, and coffee, tea and snacks throughout the program.

There are many hotels in the area for families travelling to our campus which may offer a preferred rate for Suffolk University visitors.

If your student has already registered, they will have the ability to add family members or alter their family orientation registration up to 48 hours before their session date.  Families will also have the option to register on site, but we will only accept cash or check payments from families who do not register in advance

All new freshmen and transfer students are required to attend orientation. For family members, Orientation sessions are optional but highly recommended.  Our program is also flexible, allowing you to mold the schedule to your needs and be available for other business on and off campus.

Please feel free to join us for those sessions you believe will be most beneficial for you.
