Below you will find the spring/summer email communications sent to incoming MSW. These weekly emails highlight various topics, containing important and helpful information. As new ones are sent, they will be added here.

Computing and IT for MSW Students

MSW students are required to obtain a personal laptop computer. Please review the Requirement Policy.

Due to the nature of assignments in the SSW, students would benefit from having Microsoft Office (available to current UM students at no charge) or similar software package. Additionally, come courses may require that students purchase SPSS (available to current UM students at a significantly reduced cost) for their personal computer. Note that tablets will not meet the computer requirement as they are unable to run SPSS.

U-M Microsoft Office 365 and the Adobe Creative Cloud are available to current University of Michigan students at no charge.

The UMICH Tech Guide is a valuable resource of information on tech needs, as well as tech services available to students while at Michigan.

Get Your MCard

All MSW students will need to obtain their student ID, which is called an 'Mcard'. The Mcard is needed to check out library materials, access U-M workout facilities, and also will allow you to ride AATA and U-M buses for free. Mcard holders are also eligible for numerous discounts around the U-M and Ann Arbor area. Note that your Mcard photo is also used for the class roster.

You may submit your photo via the Graduate Student Photo Submission webpage. The submission deadline is July 30th. If you submit a photo, you may pick up your Mcard at Fall SEED Orientation check-in.

Please review additional details on the SSW MCard webpage.
