Family Transition Workshop

Welcome to the University and Parent & Family Programs!

Parent & Family Programs serves as a home for you, offering support, resources and events that will enhance you and your student's experience. Whether you are a first year family member or your student is a senior, we are excited to serve you and have a variety of programs that will hopefully meet your families' needs.

We know how overwhelming the transition to the University of Arkansas can be not only for students, but for parents and family members as well. In an effort to emulate an orientation experience for parents and families, Parent & Family Programs has created Family Transition Workshops.

Our Family Transition Workshops are designed to provide you with information about the University to ease the transition for both you and your student. The workshops consist of two sections that will be hosted on our Razorback Family Portal. The first section will tackle the U of A basics such as Housing and Dining. We will also provide you with an overview of the various academic colleges, their majors and resources for academic success as well as information about the Treasurer's Office, financial aid, scholarships and on-campus jobs. In section two we will focus on campus safety, history and traditions, health and wellness and involvement.  

For additional questions, we will be hosting two live Q&A's in July. 

- Live session 1: July 25, 2022 @ 12:00pm CST 

- Live session 2: July 27, 2022 @ 12:00pm CST
