Parents and Families of CSUCI Students

Your student’s decision to attend Cal State Channel Islands (CSUCI) incorporates the entire family. Parent and Family Resources provides resources and referrals intended to ease this transition from high school or from another institution.

We communicate with parents and families through Facebook, Instagram, and our newsletter. Please make sure to follow our social media pages to stay connected and up to date with your students.

Student Parents and Caregivers

Being a college student is hard, and the added responsibility of taking care of others makes things harder. Parent and Family Resources also provides activities and referrals for students supporting their own children, taking care of parents, or caring for other family members.  


Welcome Celebration

Welcome Celebration is an opportunity for the campus community to welcome new students and their families to the Dolphin Community. Current students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to attend with their families.

Family Weekend

Family Weekend features a series of events to engage families in student life. Whether your student lives on campus or commutes to classes, join us to learn more about CSUCI’s traditions, programs, and services. This is also a time for student parents and caregivers to bring your families to campus.

Noche de Familia

CSUCI students and their families are encouraged to come and meet the CSUCI Latinx faculty, staff, and administrators at Noche de Familia. This event is completely in Spanish.


We look forward to welcoming you to campus to recognize this milestone in your student’s life and to celebrate their accomplishments. For more information regarding Commencement, please visit the following page:
