This program is designed for parents, spouses, or other adult family members in a supporting role.
As a family member of a new MassBay student, you’re also a member of the MassBay community. Our Family Orientation is an opportunity for parents, guardians, and other supportive family members of new MassBay students to connect with the college.
This Orientation will offer advice on how we can work together to support your college student, connect you with MassBay resources available to maintain student success, and introduce you to some of the faculty and staff at MassBay who work with our students. Some of the presenters will include representatives from: Financial Aid, Disability Resources, Student Accounts, Academic Achievement Center, Faculty, and others.
This event is intended for families & guests of the MassBay student. However, there is a New Student Orientation running at the same time that students can attend: please sign-up for that separately below.
