You can "Follow" your child on Merit and receive an email notification each time your child's college grants your child an achievement. Use the instructions below to Follow your child's success:

1. Go to, type your child's name into the search field and click enter.
A list of students will appear, look for your child, and click on their name -- this will bring you to your child's Merit Page.

2. Look for the "Follow" button on your child's Merit page and click it, you will be redirected to a sign up page. *You will have to create a Merit account in order to follow your child's achievements.
