Frequently Asked Questions
What should I bring to STAR?
- A pen or pencil and notebook
- Dress for the weather (check weather conditions prior to traveling to campus)
- Government issued form of photo identification (you will need this in order to get your student I.D. card)
- Transcripts from other institutions from which you are transferring credits (if you have not already submitted those transcripts)
Are parents required to attend?
- Parents are not required to attend but we strongly encourage parents to attend STAR. The sessions are informative and anxiety-reducing for many parents. Parental involvement in the day is important for the support it provides your student, but also for the information tailored specifically to your questions and concerns. We address academic requirements, degree planning, academic advising, academic support programs, billing, health and counseling services, career counseling, dining options, residence hall living, rules and regulations, safety issues, and adjustment to the University environment. You will also be able to meet with faculty, staff, and students, as well as other parents.
