Welcome, #MarshallUFamilies!

Every new semester, Marshall University undergoes a transition with the arrival of new sons and daughters. We are by your side as the Marshall community grows and changes in exciting new ways. Parent and Family Services can assist you and guide you through the resources and administrative processes of the university. Think of us when you have any questions about campus, housing, student organizations, or anything concerning your role in your student’s college success.

Be sure to check back here for exciting updates, featured college articles and more from Marshall University’s Office of Parent and Family Services!

Marshall University Parent & Family Facebook Group

Marshall University Parent Programs would like to invite you to join our new parents group made just for you! We have recently removed the parent page because we wanted to give parents and families of the Herd a chance to not only get information but to communicate back! Here, you will meet hundreds of #MarshallUFamilies, connect with Sons and Daughters of Marshall in your own town and learn all there is to learn about Marshall University.

We will continue to update this website, but we will also share fun Collegiate Parent articles, informative reads about topics like Summer Preparation, First Semester Jitters and Final Year Logistics.
