Orientation for Parents and Families
Welcome to the Bobcat Family!
In addition to our required, online Orientation/Class Registration program, we are pleased to be able to host a few optional, in-person Student Bobcat Boot Camp Orientation sessions that will be focused on building community between incoming students and the MSU campus. If a student registers for an optional, in-person Bobcat Boot Camp Orientation session, one parent may also be able to register for a free, optional, in-person parent Orientation session that will occur at the same time. One parent per one student may attend these sessions because we have a strict session capacity as a result of the pandemic. While the student and parent sessions will be happening simultaneously, the programs are separate and there will be very limited free time to see one another. Bobcat Boot Camp Orientations will be held on:
|Dates||Fee||Modality||Registration||Attendance Capacity||Parent Orientation|
|Bobcat Boot Camp #1||Monday, June 14, through Wednesday, June 16||$175 non-refundable Meals & Lodging Fee (student only)||In-person||Advance registration required||Yes||Yes (free for parent)|
|Bobcat Boot Camp #2||Monday, June 28, through Wednesday, June 30||$175 non-refundable Meals & Lodging Fee (student only)||In-person||Advance registration required||Yes||Yes (free for parent)|
|Bobcat Boot Camp #3||Monday, July 19, through Wednesday, July 21||$175 non-refundable Meals & Lodging Fee (student only)||In-person||Advance registration required||Yes||Yes (free for parent)|
|NO Bobcat Boot Camp #4||N/A; any additional in-person programing will align with Move-In and Welcome Week activities.|
By registering for this in-person Bobcat Boot Camp, students and parents are agreeing to follow MSU's COVID-19 protocols while they are on the MSU campus. Our COVID-19 protocol will be distributed in early Spring to those who register. Protocol will be updated as the program draws closer, but you can view similar MSU Saturday COVID-19 protocols here.
All parents, regardless of if they register for a Parent Boot Camp, will also be sent a webpage with video recordings and more information about how to support their student.
