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. We know that there is a lot to think about as you consider graduate school. You can expect to receive The Vector every couple of weeks, and we hope it will serve as a one-stop shop for helpful resources, important dates, and reminders. Our admitted student webpage is another great resource.

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 life and academic support.
Admitted graduate residential students, 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. 
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 April 15

As a reminder, the April 15 decision deadline is quickly approaching. To confirm your enrollment for Fall 2022, log into your Wolverine Access account and follow the steps outlined in your admissions letter. Please note that for most programs, enrollment is not complete until your non-refundable enrollment deposit is also submitted. 
If you are interested in seeking a decision extension or exploring deferral options, you should reach out to your department program coordinator.
