Family Orientation

Your student is officially becoming a Louisville Cardinal, and we want to invite you to join in on the fun! Register for Family Orientation this summer, where we will make sure you have all the necessary information you need to partner with and support your students as they begin their future with us at UofL! By taking part in this event, you will learn more about:

  • Campus resources
  • Academic culture and expectations at UofL
  • UofL Parent’s Association
  • Financial Aid and payment

Important Information:

  • $40 registration fee per guest that covers all materials, staffing and two meals (lunch & dinner).
  • Preregistration is required.  Due to space limitations, we cannot guarantee entrance the day of programming for anyone not preregistered.
