Winter term departure testing

As your student prepares to end the Winter term, and leave the University of Michigan campus, all students are encouraged to continue practicing enhanced social distancing and be tested before they leave campus. Following these protocols will promote safety by reducing the likelihood of students infected with COVID-19 returning to their permanent residences and surrounding communities. As a U-M student, your student plays an important role in helping to keep the U-M community — as well as your communities back home — as safe as possible.

Student vaccination information

As of April 5, your student became eligible to receive one of the COVID-19 vaccines, as the state expanded eligibility to include all Michigan residents age 16 and older.  There are now opportunities designed to help your U-M student get vaccinated against COVID-19 before returning home. Appointments are available on campus at Michigan Stadium and through partnerships with local pharmacies. Learn how to help your wolverine get registered to be vaccinated at CampusBlueprint.umich.edu/vaccine.

Our Time With Your Student

Dear Wolverine Families,

I recently told Student Life staff how nervous I was that I would wake up on April 1 and find out that all the good signs of the pandemic slowing down were just an elaborate April Fool’s prank. But this is no prank. This is progress.

A COVID Update

Dear Parents and Families,

Today University of Michigan President Mark S. Schlissel, Provost Susan M. Collins and Vice President for Student Life Martino Harmon provided the biweekly Campus COVID-19 Briefing, where they were joined by campus leaders to provide updates and information about campus conditions and responses to the U-M community. 

Yesterday, President Schlissel announced that the university will open Michigan Stadium to graduates during our May 1 virtual commencement ceremony. This opportunity follows two important changes: The state of Michigan has increased the allowed capacity of outdoor stadiums, and we are seeing far fewer COVID-19 cases among students. Numerous safety protocols will be in place for graduates who choose to view commencement in the stadium. 

Earlier today, your student received this emailed update announcement, which includes a link to the COVID-19 Briefing and stadium announcement.

Exploring interests, planning the future 

If your student is in the exploration stage of their education and career planning, they may want to use i-plan from the U-M Career Center to explore interests and much more. Consisting of three areas of focus -- Your Story, Your Community, and Your Presentation -- the i•plan™ represents the many small things your student can do throughout their time at U-M that build toward a fulfilling career.  The Career Center also offers a number of services and opportunities for your student.
