Parent and Family Information

Congratulations! You have an LSUS student!

As a parent, you play an important role in your student's success. We want to help you in your efforts.

Your student will learn about the University and all its resources at Freshman Orientation. Although Freshman Orientation is limited to students, we've designed a program just for you... so that you can learn about the University and assist your student in their transition to college. For registration information, complete the Parent Orientation Registration Form. The program will:

  • assist you in understanding the transition issues your student will be experiencing
  • provide practical suggestions for supporting your student's success
  • answer your questions about financial aid, housing, activities, and other resources on campus allow you to meet your student's Dean, administrators, and provide a campus tour

You may also want to check out the other information regarding what you might expect from your student and frequently asked questions.
