Are you the parent of a Chico State student? Families play an important role in students' transition to college. We know that you may have some questions about Chico State and questions about your student’s transition to the university.

Orientation and New Student Programs will be offering a program for parents during in-person orientation sessions. Your student can add your name when they make their reservation.
