New Student Orientation 2024

One or two family members are welcome to attend New Student Orientation with their student and participate in Family Orientation sessions provided concurrently with our student sessions. If your student is participating in the Nest Fest Overnight Orientation, family sessions will be provided on Day 1 after check-in. If your student is attending a One-day In-person Orientation, family sessions will be provided throughout that same day.

Some formal Orientation sessions such as Fall 2024 course registration will not permit family members to participate with their student due to occupancy restrictions. This also allows the student to begin navigating the Stockton experience independent of family members, supported by the guidance of Stockton staff and students.
