  Parent and Family Weekend FAQ's

 Can other family members/friends come to PFW?
Yes, the more the merrier.

Will my student get to sit with us at the Football game?
No. FAU students receive free admission to the football games to sit in the designated student section.

What if I want to sit with my student, is that possible?
Yes, when you are registering for the weekend at the registration site, there is an option to purchase a separate football ticket for your student. That ticket is $10.

I need my membership number to register.
Parents don’t need a membership number to register for PFW. The pay site asks for a member number but you can just skip that. That is something that is internal to that system and we don’t have those numbers. You can register without the number.

Where will I park when I get there?
All parents registered will receive a detailed email after September 12 from with parking information, exact times and suggestions for “what to wear” listed.
