Cranwell International Center and Family and Alumni Relations recognize that a student’s transition to college is shared by the whole family. Although it is essential for new students to make their own decisions, we also understand that new students need the support of their families during this transition. Parent and Family Orientation includes information for our new Hokie families to help answer questions and address concerns about student life at Virginia Tech. We encourage you to attend!

Parent and Family Orientation Sign-up

When your student signs up for orientation through Hokie SPA, they will be asked to provide information on all family members and guests who will be attending with them. There is a $35 fee for each family member or guest attending orientation. This fee provides a lunch, orientation materials, and all related programming. Your student will be required to pay the family member/guest fee in order to complete their sign-up and reserve their space for orientation.

Cancellation and Refund Policy

The family member/guest fee is nonrefundable.


A lunch is included in the family member/guest fee.
