Parent & Families

Welcome to the University of Michigan Family!

Thank you for supporting your student’s decision to attend the University of Michigan. We believe that parents and family members are an important source of encouragement and support as students enter the University.

Need to provide us with an updated email address?

We typically email the email addresses provided by your student at the time that they apply to the University. We recognize that they may not have included or provided an outdated email address, so we wanted to collect your updated contact information. Please provide an updated email address using this form. In order for us to update your contact information, we need to verify information about your incoming student. If you are unable to provide accurate information about your student on the form, we may be unable to verify your incoming student and therefore will not update your contact information.

Please note that this will only update the Office of New Student Program's contact information and not necessarily update other offices or departments contact information for you. Our office only emails parents, families and incoming students in regards to Orientation. 

New Student Hybrid Orientation Summer and Fall 2022

We look forward to working with your family as you all start your journey together as a Michigan family. Orientation is required for all new first-year and transfer, degree-seeking students. The Orientation program for 2022 will be a hybrid experience involving both virtual and in-person components for all incoming undergraduates.

After your student has been admitted to U-M and paid the $300 enrollment deposit, they will receive an email in late April to register for a virtual Academic Advising Date. They will also receive instructions for steps they will need to complete as part Orientation.

All students will also participate in a robust day of orientation programming when you arrive on campus at the end of August. We will also offer programming for the parents and families of our new students during this time as well. Further information on the parent and family program will be released throughout the summer.
