When your student attends the University of Tennessee, the Office of New Student & Family Programs supports your whole family.

Life at UT is exciting, diverse, and filled with community experiences and service opportunities. Our research partnerships, dedicated faculty, and nationally ranked programs all help your student turn big ideas into reality.

Throughout your student’s UT career, there will be countless opportunities for you to provide love and support and help navigate what is, for many students, their first time away from home.

The Office of New Student & Family Programs and the UT Parents Association provide the resources you need to stay connected and support your student’s success from orientation through graduation. When you join the Parents Association, you will receive timely news tailored to your interests, keep up to date with our annual Parent Calendar, and participate in special events on campus.

Stay connected. Support your student.

All UT families can receive no-charge bi-monthly emails from the Office of New Student & Family Programs to help you stay informed with campus news, information, and ways to support your student.

Bi-Monthly Emails

Families can join the UT Parents Association to receive these bi-monthly emails, but also additional benefits and services including publications, invitations to campus events, local information, and extras at orientation.
