The Office of Parent Programs at UNT was established to enhance the college experience for both parents and students and help build sustaining relationships between parents and UNT. Our goal is to provide parents and families with information to help better understand their student's life at UNT. We believe partnering with family members supports student success. 

Parent Orientation

Parent Orientation is a special program that runs concurrently with New Student Orientation, Transfer Orientation, or Early Eagle Orientations. The program is optional, but highly encouraged. Through this program, parents have the opportunity to learn about the many offices, services, academic programs UNT has to offer.

Here's what parents are saying:

“Parent orientation was extremely helpful and informative. I now feel confident that my student and I will successfully make the transition to college life.”

“The Parent Orientation program is excellent. Every parent should attend, including parents of transfer students!”   

UNT Parent Association

The UNT Parent Association is an organization established and run by UNT parents. Its goals include encouraging involvement between students, parents, and the university, building relationships with the university, and keeping fellow parents informed about opportunities at UNT. In addition, its members and their students receive several benefits, like discounts at the UNT Bookstore and possible scholarships for its students.
