Parents of Newly Admitted Students

Congratulations on your student’s admission to Michigan Ross!

Our goal is to ensure that students feel prepared and have a smooth transition to Ross and U-M. We’re here to support you every step of the way, starting with the U-M orientation programs for students, parents, and families. These programs include Campus Day, where students and their families can tour campus to learn more about their specific school or college within U-M, and First-Year Orientation. Ross students admitted for the fall term should look for information from U-M about First-Year Student Orientation in mid-April.

We also encourage you to check out the U-M Parents & Families website for information about first-year expectations by month, the student experience, and other parent and family resources.

Below you can find direct links to key information you’ll need, including information about financial aid and tuition, housing, and other campuswide programs and resources managed by U-M.
