Parent & Families

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. 

We encourage you to participate in an appropriate Parent & Family Orientation program which will provide you with information to help you support your student during his or her transition to Michigan.

We typically offer programs specific to families of freshmen, transfer students, and international students (depending on the term of admission). Click on the links at left to learn more.
