Spartan Parent and Family Orientation Program 

The Spartan Parent and Family Orientation program has been designed with you in mind. Parent and family members are highly encouraged to attend the Spartan Parent and Family Frosh Orientation Program. This is a separate program that occurs simultaneously during the student Frosh Orientation program and includes specific information for parent and family members. While at orientation, you will learn about campus resources available to both you and our student, have an opportunity to meet faculty, staff, current students, and other parents.

Please note that everyone who attends as a parent, family member, and/or guest—including siblings/children—must each pay the (TBD) fee. Parents and family members can sign up here:

We look forward to seeing you soon! 

Parent/Family Housing Accommodations for Frosh Orientation 

The Frosh Orientation team has partnered with hotels near San Jose State University to offer parents, family members, and guests, who will be attending Frosh Orientation, overnight housing options. The Parent/Family Orientation fee DOES NOT cover overnight accommodations, so please plan accordingly as you and your student are preparing to attend Frosh Orientation.
