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-in will also provide parents and families with an opportunity to meet with SAIC departments and staff. More information can be found at this website under "Parent and Family Events". All programs will follow recommended COVID-19 guidelines by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), as well as the SAIC Make Together team. 

You can watch the recording of our webinar on July 26 - Preparing for your Arrival: Webinar for Families recording, here.
