Updates and Messages

Over the summer, New Student Programs will send bi-weekly communication with updates and information to help prepare new students for the transition to Emory. Once we begin communication for the 2023-2024 school year, you will find an archive of messages sent both to students and families on this page.

Our bi-weekly communication includes important new student updates, reminders of upcoming deadlines, and a peek inside life at Emory, so it's important that your contact information is updated within Emory's systems to ensure that you receive all University communications. See below for instructions:
