Hello Parents and Families!

Welcome again! As your student is preparing for their transition to Emory, you will likely have your own set of questions and we’re here to help! Throughout the summer we will send bi-weekly emails and host a Family Friday Webinar Series. Below are a few resources to get you started.

Student Communications

This week, first-year students were given instructions on how to add or update family email addresses into OPUS, a student portal at Emory. It will be important that your student adds you so you don't miss any Emory communications intended for parents/families throughout their Emory experience.
