When you arrive, you should plan on checking in at the Parent and Family Weekend Welcome Center, located in the University Center on the 3rd floor. At check-in you will receive all of your registration materials.
Starting Thursday 9/28 afternoon, the registration site will re-open for those who still need to register for the Go Tigers Go or Youth packages. You will also be able to purchase additional t-shirts (extremely limited supply) or game tickets. Lastly, new PFA members may pick up your welcome gift if you joined and elected Parent and Family Weekend or office pick up.
Welcome Center Hours:

- Friday 9/29: 9am - 6pm
Saturday 9/30 (Late Check-in): 8am - 10am
If you are unable to check-in, you should make arrangements for your student or other registered family member to come by and check-in on your behalf.
T-shirt Only - Please come to the Welcome Center during operating hours to pick up your t-shirt order.
Game Tickets Only - If you only purchased football tickets, you do NOT need to check-in. Game tickets are digitally disbursed. Please read the Game Day information in this email to prepare for game day.
Go Tigers Go Registrants
Your Go Tigers Go Package includes entry to all Parent and Family Weekend (PFW) activities. It also includes entry to PFW activities for your UofM student. You will receive a name badge and lanyard at check-in. You and your registered guests (including your student) are required to wear your name badge for access to all PFW events. We'll have a badge decoration station at check-in so you can make it your own!
UofM students can attend the football game for FREE with their student ID (they must claim a digital student ticket ahead of time for entry, and are required to sit in the designated student section). If you would like your student to sit with you in the PFW section, you will need to purchase a single game ticket for them using our link.
