We are here to assist you remotely. If you have questions about orientation, we encourage you to email us at You can also reach us by phone (940-565-4198) Monday - Friday from 8am-5pm.

About Parent & Family Orientation 

Parent & Family Orientation is a special program that runs concurrently with the student orientation program. The program is optional, but highly encouraged. Through this program, parents have the opportunity to learn about the many offices, services, academic programs UNT has to offer.

While you and your student will have separate itineraries, you will be together several times throughout the experience. Due to the nature of our programs, parents will not be able to attend college meetings, advising sessions, and actual registration. Parents will, however, be able to join their student after registration to help take care of payment if necessary.

Parent and Family Q&A Sessions

We know that the college going process is often a family decision, and that you likely have questions as your student prepares for the upcoming semester. Join the Parent Programs team during our weekly Question & Answer Sessions. These sessions are hosted every Wednesdsay at 4:00 p.m. CST via Zoom. Click the link below to join the conversation!

If you can't join a Q&A session, check out our weekly Mean Green Family Live webinars (link). These webinars are topic-based sessions to inform you of programs and services at UNT.

What Parents & Families are Saying about Orientation

"We thoroughly enjoyed the parent orientation last week; your team did an excellent job. It was informative and we feel a part of UNT now. Our son, had a great time also, he was ready to come 'yesterday'. The weekend validated his decision to attend UNT."

"I was impressed with the 'care' factor from all of the faculty and staff we met. We feel as though we are leaving our daughter in excellent hands. Everyone seemed interested in the success of my student and your support of her is impressive! Go Mean Green! We are so thrilled with the large available resources for the students."

"Having all of the information readily available was wonderful, but more importantly, I so appreciate how EVERYONE working on the orientation was so helpful and willing to find answers to my questions."
