Parents Information


We are excited to have you and your student as a part of the Asbury community! We know the transition to college is a significant one for the whole family, and we want to help make it as smooth and enjoyable as possible. Whether your son or daughter just graduated from high school or is transferring from another institution, we look forward to your student beginning a new chapter at Asbury University.

Family and Friends Orientation, August 8 and 9, 2017Parents of an Asbury student

An optional but informative orientation program which includes relevant programming and helpful information for you is available for parents of first-time students and transfers with 29 or fewer Asbury-approved credit hours. Once you arrive on campus Tuesday and register your student for Welcome Week, you will have time to help your son or daughter move in and get settled in the residence hall. That evening we kick off the programming with a Faculty Reception for you to meet some of your student's professors, followed by the President's Convocation.

The following day was crafted with you in mind--we want to provide an opportunity for you to meet staff from a wide variety of offices ranging from Finanical Aid and the Registrar's Office to Student Development and Business Affairs. New this year is a special closing service for students and parents, which you will not want to miss! Your time on campus will conclude by 5 p.m. Wednesday, while Welcome Week activities continue for your student. A schedule will be posted soon

Does your student have middle-school or high-school age siblings?  Register them for College Connection, a free program for middle-school and high-school age siblings offered during designated sessions of Family and Friends Orientation. College Connection is available Wednesday from 9:15 - 11:45 a.m. and 1:00 - 3:00 p.m.  To register, fill out the registration form by Friday, August 3rd. Registration for College Connection is necessary so that we have an accurate count for both the Challenge Course and the art project. 

We look forward to having you here and are privileged to be a part of your son or daughter's life. God bless!
