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 orientation for students, parents, and families

U-M and Ross also offers a Campus Day program, where students and their families can tour campus to learn more about U-M and their specific school or college within U-M. 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.
