Welcome Parents, Family, and Friends

Welcome to SAIC! We know that parents, family, and friends offer important support and assistance to our new students, so we provide a Parent and Family virtual orientation that is specifically designed to offer a wealth of information for both you and your family. In-person sessions during move-uin will also provide parents and families with an opportunity to meet with SAIC departments and staff. More information will be provided in the coming weeks. All programming will follow recommended COVID-19 guidelines by the CDC, IDPH, and CDPH, as well as the SAIC Make Together team.
