Student with their family on move in day

Welcome to the Aggie Family!

Congratulations on your student’s acceptance to UC Davis! Orientation recognizes that students have many people in their lives who have supported and encouraged their success leading to admittance to UC Davis. Whether you are a parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle, sibling, partner, spouse, legal guardian, dependent or friend, welcome to the Aggie family! There are many ways you can support your student while they transition to UC Davis, and Orientation is a great place to learn more.

Aggie 101 Online Modules

All new students complete Aggie 101, an online program that introduces them to campus resources, policies, and expectations. Aggie 101 has valuable information for families as well, and you can access the program by creating a guest account. As a guest, you will see all Aggie 101 pages, so there may be some pages that are not applicable to your student (e.g. you will see information about international students, even if they are not an international student).
