Your incoming student must complete their Bama Bound registration before you can make your Parent & Family Orientation registration. If your student has already registered for Bama Bound New Student Orientation, they may have chosen to create a parent log in and password when making their reservation. If so, visit the “Registration” link to register using the log in information your student created. If your student did not create a parent login, they will need to login to myBama and register a parent or create a login. If your student still needs to make their Bama Bound registration, a Parent & Family Orientation registration can be made at the same time your student makes their registration.
Parent & Family Orientation is designed for anyone who will be supporting a new University of Alabama student in their transition to the Alabama community. Anyone attending any portion of Parent & Family Orientation must be registered.
Parent & Family Orientation is offered in conjunction with Bama Bound New Student Orientation. There are Parent & Family Orientation dates during the months of May, June, July, and August. Please see our dates for more detailed information.
