Family Orientation

Congratulations on your student's acceptance to Juilliard!

Juilliard has implemented a comprehensive orientation program for new students at all academic levels to assist new students in the next step of their educational journey. Our goals for New Student Orientation are threefold:

  • inform the new students about Juilliard and all of its programs, opportunities, and resources;
  • assist them in their adjustment to college life; and
  • introduce New York City life through information sessions and sightseeing activities.

Recognizing the importance of building a smooth and informative transition for our new students and their families, the Office of Student Affairs offers a Family Orientation program. This program aims to provide resources and helpful information so families can build a partnership with Juilliard to better support our students. The Family Orientation includes information sessions about the different services offered for students and opportunities to meet key administrators and faculty.

"My experience with the New Parent Orientation at Juilliard was very informative. Being a new parent of a college student was a bit stressful; however, after attending the orientation, I felt great relief learning about the support system, the amazing faculty, and the daily life on campus. When it was time to say our goodbyes, I knew in my heart that my daughter would be in good hands at Juilliard." - Mary Palomo
