Parent and Family Fall Schedule

Updated: June 8, 2021

As the university prepares to welcome new students to campus this fall, we continue to review and make adjustments to the fall orientation schedule. Modifications are made with the health and well-being of our students, parents and family members in mind. Please check this website frequently for updates.

The Parent and Family Orientation is separate from and runs parallel to the student schedule during Passport Week: Fall New Student Orientation. It provides opportunities for the families of new students to meet each other and learn more about HPU's programs and resources.
