Parents & Families
Welcome to the Panther family!
At Florida International University, we strongly believe that family members provide crucial support for the new experiences that students will encounter during college. Orientation and Parent Programs exist to help new students and their families with this transition and growth.
If your student is a freshman, he or she is required to attend our mandatory Freshman Orientation program. We are excited to offer you the opportunity to attend a concurrent Parent Orientation program to help answer your questions and ease concerns about your student’s transition to college and FIU.
We also invite all parents and families to continue their involvement with FIU and to reconnect with their students on campus by attending our spirited Parent and Family Day that coincides with our annual Homecoming celebration.
There’s also no better way to show your pride as a Panther Parent than to join and become a member of our Panther Parent Association.
Finally, to support you in your transition as your student begins college, we’ve assembled a variety of resources and links that we believe can help during this period.
