Weekly Student Newsletters
The Approaching Stanford Newsletter is sent to all incoming undergraduate transfer students every week beginning June 8. The newsletter, delivered only to your Stanford email account, provides campus information, critical updates, and necessary action items leading up to New Student Orientation. To ensure you don't miss a newsletter, use your SUNet ID to log into your Stanford email account at webmail.stanford.edu.

Summer Newsletters for Families
Throughout the summer, the Approaching Stanford team will send the Approaching Stanford Newsletter for Families to those listed in your Approaching Stanford Forms. To add your family member to the mailing list after the Approaching Stanford Forms deadline (June 30), please send an email request with your family member's name and contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org. Note that this request must come from you, the student, not your family member.
Once the academic year begins, these family members will begin receiving the quarterly Stanford Parent and Guardian Newsletter. To add your family member to the mailing list after the academic year begins, please send an email request with your family member's name and contact information to email@example.com. Again, this request must come from you, the student, not your family member.
