Parent of Accepted Student
My DS20 was accepted in January and had already made his deposit for Fall 20. Does anyone know if UMD reaches out to the parents of the accepted student? I have seen several posts that it might go to the student and not to the parent. I have been checking my email each day and have not received anything whatsoever. Wondering if it is worth making a call to the Admissions office.4 replies
