Parent and Family Orientation

The University of Texas at El Paso welcomes you!

Welcome to UTEP! As a parent of a new student, you are now part of a wonderful community that we call the Miner Nation. We want your student to have an enriching and successful college experience. That begins with Orientation. At Orientation, you will have an opportunity to learn academic expectations, meet with faculty, staff, and current students,and learn about the exciting opportunities that await you as a UTEP Parent. Parent and Family Orientation sessions are designed to introduce you to the University and its resources as well as provide you with the tools to best support your student with this transition.
What does Parent and Family Orientation entail?

Parent sessions include Financial Planning, Supporting your Student, and other topics. We have panels of current UTEP parents and students ready to answer questions and talk candidly about their experiences.
Parents are not required to attend a Parent and Family Orientation.
