The Office of Parent and Family Affairs is excited to provide Terp Family eConnection, a new communications portal to enhance your Terp family experience and customize the information you receive. The goal of Terp Family eConnection is to ensure you receive the most relevant news items and special notices at just the right time in your student's journey.
Terp Family eConnection is your one-stop shop for:
- Access to important news, updates, and deadlines;
- Personalized newsletters specific to you and your student;
- Announcements via email;
- Sharing of updates with your student and/or friends and family.
Parent and family member emails are automatically imported as their undergraduate student enrolls at the university. Once that happens, you will receive a welcome email with instructions on how to complete the registration process.
No welcome email? Or don’t want to wait? No worries! To create an account and set-up your profile, visit:
Once you create an account, you have the ability to personalize newsletters, from content to frequency. You can choose to receive the newsletter digest weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, or quarterly.* The online portal also generates news and information specific to you and your student, all based on the personal interests (or communities) you select, like health & wellness, athletics, info for families of sophomores, etc.
And, if your email address or contact information changes, please update this on your Terp Family eConnection profile.
*Don't worry! You'll still receive important or urgent news and announcements from the university via email. These special announcements will be pushed out on the platform in a timely manner regardless of the frequency you select for the newsletter.
