We Succeed Together

The University of Alabama welcomes incoming students' families to participate in Bama Bound’s parent/family orientations for a glimpse into the transformational journey students experience at UA. Family members receive valuable insight regarding campus resources for a successful collegiate experience.

Bring Your Family

Parent & Family Orientation

Parent & Family Orientation addresses matters of particular interest to you as a parent or guardian. During Parent & Family Orientation, you will receive an overview of the campus resources and support services available to assist your student in being a successful member of the Capstone community. Students may register parents for Parent & Family Orientation during the Bama Bound Orientation online registration. The cost for a single guest is $40 with no fee for each additional guest.

Sibling Orientation

To assist our students and their families in the transition to college, we offer the Sibling Orientation Program that allows siblings an opportunity to get to know UA, the place where their brother or sister will be living and learning during the next few years.

If the Bama Bound student has a sibling that is a rising ninth grader through rising senior, we invite them to participate in the Bama Bound Sibling Orientation Program at the same time as their brother or sister.

Students may register their siblings using the Bama Bound Orientation online registration.

**Please note that Sibling Orientation is only available during on-campus Bama Bound sessions, not virtual Bama Bound sessions. For on-campus sessions, at least one guardian must be registered for and attend Parent & Family Orientation to have a sibling participate in Sibling Orientation.
