Parents/Families/Caregivers

Welcome Pioneer Parents! You are a critical member of the Pioneer community as you support your student through the transition into William Paterson. Your student will need to complete some required modules and can participate in additional pre-recorded sessions as well as live events. You also have similar presentations available below. Please follow the links to register for the live sessions or view other pre-recorded sessions at your leisure. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at 973-720-6206 or WPU-ORIENTATION@wpunj.edu

Please note that the sessions on the “student pages” are specifically for them, but the following session is tailored for you considering the typical questions asked by parents and families.
