Parent and Family Online Orientation

Welcome to the T-Bird Family! We are excited to welcome you to Southern Utah University.

This orientation was designed to introduce you to a few things your student might experience as a Thunderbird and to help you identify ways that you can support your student and help them create a successful experience. You can complete the orientation section-by-section or visit the topics that will be most helpful for your student. The support your student receives from you plays a key role in their success. We look forward to having your student at Southern Utah University, and we encourage you to stay connected as you join us in supporting your student throughout their journey.


Stay connected! Parents can get to know the University by following along on social media @SUUTbirds and @SUUParentandFamilyServices.

Sign up for our Parent and Family newsletter for just in time information on supporting your student throughout the year.
