Families Matter at San Jose State!

Welcome to the Spartan Family! We are happy to have you as part of the San Jose State community and want to help you feel more connected to campus and understand your vital role in supporting your student.

Studies show that students with a great support system perform better in college and are more likely to earn a degree. We want you to be the best support for your student and are building a program to provide information, resources, and ways for you to connect with SJSU.

Parent and Family Frosh Orientation Program 

Parents and family members play a critical role in their student’s transition to college. We welcome parents and family members to attend the program to learn more about SJSU and how you can play a supportive role in helping your student succeed. Parent/Family Orientation takes place concurrently with Frosh Orientation. Learn more about our Parent and Family Frosh Orientation Program here.
