First Year Students

Congratulations on your admission to Miami University! We are excited for you to join our Miami community. The Office of Orientation and Transition Programs serves as a central resource for first-year students. We assist first-year students and their family members in transitioning to Miami University.

The Office of Orientation and Transition Programs (OTP) serves as a central resource for first-year students.  Our office coordinates orientation for Miami's Oxford campus, including 16 one-and-a-half day long summer orientation programs for first year students and their family members in June, as well as August orientation just before the start of fall classes, and January orientation for students who start in the spring semester. Confirmed domestic first-year students can register to attend an orientation session through their MyMiami portal. Find out more about our orientation programs by using the menu in the left column of this page.
