Pioneer Supporter Orientation

Move-in Resource Fair 2021-Family

Congratulations on your student's admission to California State University East Bay! We are pleased to offer Parent/Supporter Orientation for our families of new admitted Spring 2024 students. Parent/Supporter Orientation sessions run concurrently with our in-person Student orientation. 

Orientation is not just for students, but also is an important time for families!  We have designed a special program to address the questions and concerns family members (parents, guardians, brothers, sisters, grandparents, blended family, etc.) may have as they prepare to join the Cal State East Bay community. Family members play a key role in helping students succeed in college.  


  • "A very informative as well as enjoyable experience."
  • "Your student orientation team was excellent. It really gives a good example of the high quality education the students can expect."
  • "I feel a lot more informed and confident!"


In conjunction with in-person Orientation, Cal State East Bay offers Family/Supporter Orientation, a one-day program designed to address the many questions and concerns that parents, family members, and other supporters have as their students prepare for college. The fee for Pioneer Supporter Orientation is $35 for the first guest and $15 for each additional guest. Pioneer Supporter orientation is a full-day program with portions of the program combined with your student. Guest attending Pioneer Supporter Orientation will have an opportunity to connect with their students during lunch.
