Resources for International Students

We understand that choosing a program is a big decision and we want to help answer any questions that you may have about our program. Miami University offers many resources for international students. 

The Office of International Students & Scholars Services (OISSS) provides guidance to admitted students. Highly trained advisers help students with immigration regulations and procedures, visa matters, health insurance, and academic and personal counseling.

OISSS also connects students with additional services and campus resources, as well as conducts a new student orientation program. Orientation is designed to help new Miami students learn more about academic life, registering for courses, becoming acquainted with campus and community resources, and also meeting other new international and domestic students at Miami University!

Program Handbook

The Department of Educational Psychology (EDP) has created an Educational Psychology handbook exclusively for EPIC students. This handbook is designed to assist students in understanding the policies, expectations, and standards of the EDP program. It should also prove helpful in planning a student’s educational program of study. Current students may request a printable pdf copy of the handbook from the department.
