The University of Michigan believes that family members play a significant role in an international student’s adjustment to college in the United States. Parents and families provide a source of support and encouragement, in spite of the distance.
If your student has been admitted for the Fall Term, the Office of New Student Programs and the International Center offer International Parent & Family Orientation to provide information and resources that can help families learn more about the University of Michigan and what to expect from the student experience.
The Office of New Student Programs also coordinates Parents & Family Weekend. Parents & Family Weekend is open to all undergraduate families and provides an opportunity for families to visit campus, enjoy campus activities, and spend time with their Michigan student.
The M-Parent Website is the University’s gateway for parents. Like a roadmap of the University, the M-Parent Website helps to guide parents and family members and provides advice, campus updates, and links to resources.
