A special Parent and Family Orientation Program is offered during each of the 2-day Freshman Orientations. This program is designed to help you and your student get off to a strong start at TWU. Parent and Family Orientation includes a series of programs, information sessions, tours and activities to help acquaint you with the TWU faculty, staff and students. Lodging for the parents and guests will not be provided; however all meals for the first and second day are included in the guest fee (excluding TWU's Pre-Orientation).
We look forward to welcoming you to the Texas Woman's University campus. Please plan to join your daughter, son, spouse, family member, and/or friend at TWU New Student Orientation 2015! Registration for the Parent and Family Orientation is not online. You will register for this orientation with your student under the First- Year Student Orientation link.
What is the cost of attending Orientation?
The students' orientation fee covers the student's meals, housing (double room), t-shirt and Pioneer Camp activities in August. The fee (will be added here in mid-January) is included on the student's bill when they register for classes.
The parent/guest fee (will be added here in mid-January) covers all meals and program material for family members, but DOES NOT include lodging or any fees associated with the Pre-Orientation program that your student may be required to attend. This fee is due at orientation check-in or advanced payment at the time of registering online.
