Welcome to the Vector Newsletter: Admitted Student Edition! This newsletter is sent to students who have been admitted to the University of Michigan School of Public Health as a one-stop shop for helpful resources, important dates, and reminders.

The Vector is composed by Michigan Public Health’s Office for Student Engagement and Practice (OSEP). You may have interacted with the OSEP team as a prospective student. OSEP also manages many current student support services including student records, course grades and evaluations, career services, counseling, and student life.

We hope the Admitted Student Vector has been helpful to you. This will be the final issue. Previous issues are available at the bottom of this newsletter and on the admitted student webpage. Students who accept their enrollment offer to the University of Michigan School of Public Health will start receiving the Incoming Student Vector in May with important information for your arrival to the school.
We want to know what you think!

We have a few questions about your application experience and future plans. Each year, we actively use feedback to constantly improve our internal processes and provide students with the best possible service. This survey is for students admitted to our residential graduate degree programs. Students admitted to our online Population and Health Sciences program will receive a separate survey.
 
 
If you have questions about the survey or difficulties with the link, please do not hesitate to reach out to sph-inquiries@umich.edu.
Reminder: Confirm Your Enrollment by Friday, April 15

If you have not done so already, please confirm your enrollment for Fall 2022 by Friday, April 15.
