Foundation III Designation

International (non-immigrant visa-carrying) students may complete the Global Miami Plan’s Foundation III through 6 hours of Global Miami Plan course work. In order to qualify, courses must either be taken at Miami University or transferred in as Miami course equivalents from an institution outside your country of origin.

You must meet with an academic advisor in order to discuss and prepare your petition.

You must obtain the following to be uploaded as part of the petition:

  1. List of all courses you are requesting for Foundation III Designation—use the Miami course numbers from your Degree Audit Report (DAR). Note: transfer courses that are not equivalent to an exact Miami course are listed on your DAR as “T” numbers (e.g. MTH T01 or HST T02); list them as such. Indicate how many total hours you are petitioning for substitution for Foundation III. 
  2. Degree Audit Report—Upload a current DAR with your proposal. Please be sure to print the detailed version of your DAR that lists which courses are meeting requirements.
  3. Contact information for your Academic Advisor—You must discuss your petition with your academic advisor and receive their approval. We will send an authorization to your advisor after you submit the proposal. You must provide the advisor's name, department, and Miami email address.

All components of the proposal must be turned in before it will be reviewed by the Director of Liberal Education.
