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 in August during move-in will also provide parents and families with an opportunity to learn more about SAIC. A detailed schedule will be released in June. All programs will follow recommended COVID-19 guidelines by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), as well as the SAIC Make Together team.

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