Parent & Family Orientation

Parent & Family Orientation


Welcome Parents and Family Members!

We are excited that you are joining the John Jay family in the coming months. As the support network for your students, you play an important role in helping us develop a strong and reassuring environment that will ensure your students' success. We invite you to join your student during New Student Orientation. Our staff and faculty can assist you and your family in making a smooth transition into the John Jay College community. While your student attends their Orientation, our team holds Family Orientation on the same date and time. Your experiences will be separate but both you and your student will learn everything John Jay has to offer!

To stay informed about next steps after your students' acceptance to the college, students should periodically check their e-mail for communications from the college. Students will be sent an e-mail invitation for Orientation where they will be able to RSVP to an Orientation date that works with their schedule. Due to space restrictions we cannot accept walk-ins. When they RSVP to Orientation, they will be able to RSVP you and other family members who would like to attend our Family Orientation program. To setup their John Jay e-mail address students can contact the DoIT HelpDesk at 212.237.8200.

We invite you to check out our Family Programs website at 


It is our goal to make your John Jay experience both useful and memorable. We strive to offer the highest level of support and commitment to students. If there is any way the Office of Student Transition Programs can assist you, please feel free to contact us at 646.557.4888.
