Parents of incoming students are invited to attend new student orientation and have a separate orientation program designed just for you. By holding separate orientations, we are better able to address the unique priorities and questions that students and parents typically have. In addition, orientation is a step in your student’s adjustment to college life, dealing with topics they will encounter in college.

For Rebel parents of Hawaiian students, please visit the Hawaii New Student Orientation page.


  • Check-in: 8-9 a.m.
  • Program: 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m.

At parent orientation you will:

  • Learn about resources and support services that are available to your student from a variety of campus departments and organizations.
  • Participate in discussions about your student’s transition to college life at UNLV.
  • Meet other Rebel parents, staff, and faculty.
