Family & Guest Orientation

Move-in Resource Fair 2021-Family
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 Orientation, Cal State East Bay offers Family/Guest Orientation, a one-day program designed to address the many questions and concerns that parents and family members have as their students prepare for college. The fee for Family Orientation is $35 for the first family member and $15 for each additional family member. Family orientation is a full-day program that takes place separately but on the same days as the Freshman/Transfer Orientation. Family and friends attending Family Orientation will have an opportunity to connect with their students during lunch.
