A great place to get started in learning all that SUNY Cortland has to offer for your student is our Guide to Student Success.
We look forward to welcoming your student to SUNY Cortland throughout the orientation activities planned this summer. All experiences will be online/virtual, so students should not plan on coming to campus until their assigned move-in period. Check out our videos about resources on campus, and welcomes from our President and Mayor!
Our primary method of communication is email. Have your student regularly check theirs! They can also sign you up to receive emails from our office about family information and activities, such as our virtual question and answer session. Students are able to provide up to 2 family members names and email addresses when they sign up for their virtual faculty advising meeting.
From Open House to Orientation, you have heard about everything that Cortland has to offer so far. As you start to pack and get everything ready for your first day at Cortland, you may start asking yourself, "What does campus life look like?" Join us on each of the four Thursday nights before move-in week to hear from different offices on what to expect and what they can do to help in your transition. All presentations will be at 6:30 p.m. unless otherwise noted.
