Although the university experience is about your student and their education at the University of Central Oklahoma, we can't help but think about the needs of parents and family members. 

Broncho Family Programs is a way for the parents and family members of UCO students to stay involved with the university while giving them the tools to be a supportive family member.

Forge Family

Forge Family is a wonderful opportunity for you to learn about the UCO community and how you can support your student throughout the collegiate experience. During Forge Family, you will have the opportunity to meet UCO administration, hear from a counselor who helps with the transition, learn about campus resources and hear from current students about how their parents helped them.

Parents and family members can register for Forge Family when your student signs up for New Broncho Orientation. Forge Family will be a track for parent, family members and guests during Forge over the summer.

UCO's Broncho Family Weekend is held each fall. More info will be added closer to the event. 

Questions regarding Parent and Family Weekend can be directed to Katherine Koch, Assistant Director of Student Engagement at 405-974-3301 or
