Miami Bound Pre-Semester Programs

Miami's pre-semester programs, called Miami Bound 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 meet other new students with common interests, build a community that connects them to Miami, learn about campus services and resources, and get a head start on getting involved. Miami Bound programs are optional and may require an additional cost to participate. Registration for most programs will open on May 3, 2021 at 1:00 pm Eastern time. Students who need to cancel their registration should do so at least 3 weeks prior to their program start date to avoid cancellation fees. Check back for regular updates about program details.

While Miami Bound is an optional experience, we expect all new students to participate in Welcome Weekend and First 50 Days programs. Welcome Weekend takes place in August and includes programs throughout the weekend before classes begin. First 50 Days programming continues through mid-October. The Welcome Weekend and First 50 Days schedule includes programs designed to support new student transitions to campus and success both inside and outside the classroom. Learn more about plans for Welcome Weekend and First 50 Days programs on our website; the full schedule of programs will be available in early August.
