New Student Programs & Family Outreach and Oregon State University understand that for many students attending college is family commitment. New Student Programs & Family Outreach is here to help support you along the way.  Here are some ways we are here to support you:

  • Attend START or Transfer START with your student. We offer a parent and family orientation as part of START that you can attend and learn valuable information to supporting your student in their first year at Oregon State.
    • Since our START programming has wrapped up for the summer sessions, if your student will be attending OSU in the Winter or Spring terms, please take a look at the upcoming START dates
  • Sign up for the First-Year Parent & Family E-Newsletter
  • Parent and Family Webinar Series
  • Attend a Family Weekend
  • Parent and family calendar: You can download the PDF copy here or to get an hard copy donate to the parent and family fund
  • Parent and family tips for Welcome Week
  • Call us and we can help 541-737-7627.  While we can't provide you with information about your student directly, we can consult about processes or provide you with information about resources that may be helpful
