Welcome parents, families and others who support students!  You are an important part to our learning community.  Note that there are two sections to these Parent pages:  Information for Parents of Prospective Students and Information for Parents of Current Students.  Follow our Weekly Updates for timely reminders and useful information.

These pages are designed to answers questions you might have about UMF, and, in turn, we hope you utilize the information found on these web pages to encourage and support your students.   We know that students most often turn to trusted friends or family members for guidance.  For general  information the UMF catalog lists programs of study and academic policies.

We encourage families and friends to be actively engaged at UMF.  Here are some ways you can get involved:

– Attend Orientation.   Opening Day is Friday, August 25, 2017!  Centralized check-in begins at 8:30 am.  More details coming soon.

–  Attend events and activities (athletics, theater, music, art exhibits, recreation, lectures and readings)
