After Orientation

After you complete your orientation, you are officially a Miami student! There are some things you can do to keep you on the right track for when the semester starts. Use this list as a guide to keep you on track.

  • Start getting in the habit of checking your Miami University email each day.
  • If you'd like, give your family members access to your student records (e.g. grades bills, etc.). To do this, please log in to myMiami and click on the “Student” tab. By clicking on the link provided in the “Sharing Access to My Personal Records” section, you can add people to have access to your personal records at Miami.
  • Order books for your fall classes through the Miami Bookstore textbook ordering service.
  • Review the information given to you in your red folder that you received at SOAR. There is information on services, university resources, and opportunities through involvement within this folder.
  • Login to MyMiami and look through The Hub, Miami's student organization website, to see what student organizations interest you.
  • Complete Part 1 of SAPU, which become available in July. The deadline to complete the first portion of the program is before school starts, so you’ll want to make sure it’s complete.
  • If you wish to report a disability, need for testing/academic accommodations, or IEP/504 plan, visit the Miami University Student Disability Services webpage for more information on their services, and on setting up an appointment.
  • Register for RedHawk Refunds: RedHawk Refunds is a direct deposit option that is fast, free, secure, and convenient. RedHawk Refunds gives you access to financial aid refunds, student account refunds, or other funds owed to you by Miami. Look for a registration email from that will be sent to your Miami email account. For additional information on RedHawk Refunds, please visit
  • Keep in touch with new friends from orientation.
  • Follow Miami Regionals on social media, and plan to attend Welcome Week events during the first two weeks of school. This is a great way to get acquainted with campus, and to learn about more resources at Miami. Find out about these events on social media.
  • Pay your bill for the semester. If you have questions about bill payment, please contact the One Stop.
  • Keep an eye on your class schedule for finding information on class meeting locations, instructors, and more!
