Transfer Family Orientation

Online family orientation is an opportunity for you to learn about the academic and support staff who will play a key role in your student’s success.

What to know about family orientation:

  • You are invited to complete family orientation virtually! This free online program will help familiarize you with key academic and support services, along with the people at NIU who will set your student up for success.
  • The Family Support and Resource Guide is your virtual family orientation module. It will introduce you to the Huskie experience and help answer questions you or your student may have.
  • Your student has their own online module, Pre-Orientation Program (POP), which will help them prepare for their orientation and advising appointment. This needs to be completed before your student’s registered date.
  • Students will attend the virtual academic advising portion on their own, where they will meet with their advisor and register for classes.
