Pegasus Parent Program



The purpose of the Pegasus Parent Program is to provide quality and up-to-date information to parents and family members of UCF students. Understanding that a healthy relationship between students and parents leads to a positive college experience, we aim to assist parents in their endeavor to gather any important information that enables them to help their student succeed at UCF.

With the transition to online Orientation, First Year Experience is excited to provide an update on a virtual Family and Guest Orientation program.

For 2020, the virtual program, the Pegasus Parent Program Webinar Series and Resources will allow you to learn about all that UCF has to offer and to ask questions of other families, current students, university staff, and administrators. It will include:

  • Access to a unique web-portal with campus resource content geared towards family members
  • Weekly webinars offered multiple times a week
  • Monthly Q&A sessions with UCF Staff, Faculty, and Orientation Leaders (O-Team)
  • A 2020 Family Handbook and a 2020 Family Calendar – mailed directly to you!
