Family & Guest Orientation

For questions regarding student Orientation dates, please contact the Office of Admissions at 609-652-4261.

Academic Orientation & Registration is intended to ease your transition into university life. This program is designed to help you meet other students, faculty, staff and administrators who can offer advice and answer your questions. Students will also register for classes, review class schedules and get acquainted with classmates.

Family members are welcome to attend Orientation and are invited to participate in our special Parent and Family Orientation Program that runs concurrently while students are registering.  In addition to in person Family Orientation, supplemental programs will be offered online for families throughout the summer.  An email with a link to our Google Classroom has been sent to all family members in order to access the orientation platform.

If you did not receive the email with the link for the Family Orientation Google Classroom or if you have any questions regarding Stockton in general please email and indicate if your student is a first year, transfer, or EOF student.

If your student is attending the in-person, ONE DAY, Orientation, please expect to be on campus from 9:30am until 3:30pm.  There are special programs designed just for family members running concurrently while students are registering.

If your student is attending the in-person, TWO DAY, Over-Night Orientation, families can expect to be on campus from the student's assigned check in time on the first day until 3:30pm that same day. There are no family programs being held on the second day and family members are able to meet back up with their students at 3:00pm on the second day.
