Welcome Parents, Families, 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 Guest virtual orientation that is specifically designed to offer a wealth of information for both you and your family. Welcome sessions upon arrival will introduce your family to the ways they can support you and also engage with the SAIC community. More details about the program will be released over the summer.

For Parents and guests who are travelling to Chicago, explore all of your accommodation options by visiting our Where to Stay page.
