August Orientation

Welcome and congratulations on your acceptance to Miami University! To help you become acquainted with your new community, we invite you to participate in the August Orientation Program. Dates for 2019 August orientation are August 21-22, 2019.

At August orientation, you will:

  • Learn about Miami's approach to Liberal Education
  • Develop an academic plan for your selected major
  • Meet with an academic advisor
  • Register for fall semester classes
  • Hear about Miami's history and traditions
  • Meet faculty, staff and student leaders
  • Learn about campus resources
  • Connect with other new students
  • Become more familiar with the physical space of campus
  • Understand more about the differences between high school and college
  • Consider the goals and outcomes you'd like to achieve at Miami

By early July, first-year students who did not attend a summer orientation session in June will be contacted via email with a reminder to register to attend August orientation. Program details are also available on this website; an official invitation is not required in order to register for August orientation.

To assist families in transition and to help support students, we offer a family program on the first day of August orientation. The academic advising and registration portion of the program on Day 2 is limited to students only.
