Welcome to the Office of Family Programs (OFP), which is housed in Student Transition Programs. We focus on partnering with parents and families to promote student development and success.

There Is Still Time To Register

Although the deadline is set for October 9, 2015, there is still time to register your family for the 2015 Family Weekend festivities.  Interested families should complete the On-Site Payment Registration Form to let us know your intended participation.  You will have the ability to pay for Family Weekend Packages and or additional guests via cash, check or money order.  Please come directly to the Family Weekend Check-In location to make your on-site payments and pick-up your Family Weekend materials.

We Welcome You to the Argo Family!

Welcome to the University of West Florida (UWF) - home of the Argonauts!  On behalf of the UWF community and the Office of Family Programs (OFP), we welcome you to the Argo Family. UWF is a diverse community with benefits for students, parents and family members.  As your student adjusts to university life, we know that as parents and family members you too will experience new challenges and milestones with your student.  OFP is a key source for information at the University: 1) connecting you with valuable resources and services, 2) informing you of important student issues, 3) facilitating your involvement as an Argo parent.
