Parent/Guardian News & Information
Throughout the summer, the Approaching Stanford team will send a monthly newsletter for parents and guardians of incoming frosh and transfer students. This newsletter is an introduction to the Stanford community and serves as a resource for offices and programs across campus.
The mailing list is comprised of the email addresses of family members for whom your student included on their Approaching Stanford Forms. If you do not receive the first newsletter in mid-June (for frosh families) or mid-July/August (for transfer families), you can be added to the mailing list by having your student contact email@example.com. Note: this request to be added must come from your student.
