2019 Credit Workshop Registration

Instructional fees do not include housing fees, studio materials costs, food, and incidental expenses.

Graduate Course Credit: If not already admitted to the university, credit program admission is only applicable for credit programs offered through Global Initiatives. A bachelor's degree is required to receive graduate credit for a program.

No more than eight of the most recent graduate hours earned on Credit Program or Continuing Graduate non-degree Standing (CGS) can be applied toward a graduate degree, and then only with the approval of the department. This process could take a couple of weeks, so start early!

To apply to a graduate degree program or CGS, visit the Graduate School.

Retired employees: The fee waiver benefit for retired employees excludes graduate courses. Retired employees must contact Benefit Services at 513-529-3926 for a specific form regarding retirement status prior to registering for classes.

Miami Students: Workshop fees are in addition to your spring or summer tuition. Refer to your Bursar bill and make sure your fees are cleared before the workshop begins.

Supply Fees

Supply List and tools will be emailed to each registered participant a few weeks prior to the beginning start date of the class.

  • CraftSummer tuition does not cover materials used for students’ projects. Most classes require the student to bring certain materials and tools that are listed on the Workshop Supply List for each class. For most classes there is a minimum studio/facility fee of $10 for each class. We will make every effort to notify students in advance if we anticipate a studio fee in excess of $50. Materials fees vary by class and may change as cost of items fluctuate from our suppliers.
  • Some instructors provide specialized materials for their workshops. In this case, payment for materials is made directly to the instructor. Be prepared to pay instructors with check or cash.
  • Tool kits for metals and jewelry classes are available for a $15 rental fee.

CraftSummer material/studio fees are collected on the last day of class, Friday for weeklong classes and Sunday morning for weekend classes.
