Pre-Semester Programs: Miami Bound

Miami's pre-semester programs present opportunities for new students to engage in learning, leading, and connecting to Miami and other new students before fall semester classes begin.

Through Miami Bound programs, new students can build community, learn about campus services and resources, and get to know themselves and other new students. These programs are optional, and may require an additional cost to participate.  Use the links on this page to learn more about each Miami Bound program and to apply.

While Miami Bound is an optional experience, all new students will participate in Welcome Weekend and First 50 Days transition programs, which begins on August 23 (first-year student move in) and continue through mid-October.  The Welcome Weekend and First 50 Days schedule includes over 400 programs designed to support new student transitions and success both inside and outside the classroom.  The full schedule of Welcome Weekend and First 50 Days programs is available in early August on our website and through our Orientation and Transition mobile app.
