Family Information

Welcome Parents/Guardians & Family Members!

Congratulations on your student's acceptance into the Blue Devil family and welcome to our CCSU Community!

In the weeks to come, your student will receive emails from CCSU regarding orientation and transitioning to life as a Blue Devil. It is important that they routinely check their email.

Part of orientation program this summer will consist of Orientation programs specifically for first year students, and Transfer students. You may check each of those tabs on this page for more information about our Orientation dates this summer.

Family Program

During our Day 1 of the two-day Orientation program, we will host Families for a family orientation. Students and families begin the day together at 9 a.m., with a resource fair and Welcome after check-in, but then both follow separate tracks. Families will learn about various resources and programs, as well as what to expect throughout their first year at CCSU. The Family program concludes by 4 p.m., at which point, you will be able to connect with your student before departing. (Family Orientation for our One Day programs follow a similar schedule)

Family Resources & Pre-Orientation Online Modules

Before attending our in-person Orientation, we invite you to view our Pre-Orientation Online Modules at You can use the Guest Log-In to access the program.
