Transfer Parent and Family Program

Program Dates and Description

Parent and other family members play an important role in student success at Cal Poly Pomona. The parent and family orientation is an optional 1-day program that provides the necessary tools and information needed to support student success. This program is separate from the student program and is designed specifically for parents and family members.

You can view the dates for Transfer Orientation programs here. The Transfer Parent, Family, and Guest program takes place on the same day of the student's program if the student is attending the 1-day Transfer Orientation. If the student is attending the 1.5-day Transfer Orientation, the Parent, Family, and Guest program takes place on the first day of the student's program.

Guest Registration

Students can register you when they sign up for orientation on BroncoDirect

Cost

Summer 2017 Cost for parents, family, and guests are TBD. The cost will be per person above the age of 12 and you must register in advance. Cost includes meals and materials.

Dates

As a transfer parent, family or guest, your orientation is the same day as your student's one-day orientation program. You will check in with your student at the Bronco Student Center (Bldg. 35). Much of the day will be spent with your student. However, when students go to advising, parents, family, and guests will attend supplemental sessions designed specifically for them.

Some Orientation sessions are 1.5 day programs. The parent, family and guest programs will take place on the first day of these sessions only. Students will be expected to attend the second day or Orientation on their own.
