CAS advisor meeting with student

Important News Regarding Procedures During COVID-19 Crisis

The College of Arts & Science and University Studies (CAS) Academic Advising Office remains open and able to assist students with their advising and registration needs. However, some of our processes have changed as we consider the health and well-being of the Miami University community in light of the Coronavirus (COVID-19).

Because of the challenges we have all experienced as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak, Miami University is postponing the start date for Fall 2020 registration for all students. Time tickets have been updated in BannerWeb, so please check them so that you know your new registration dates/times.

Many of you have come to rely on drop-in hours in our office during registration times; however, CAS Advising will not be offering drop-in advising during this registration period. Please schedule an advising appointment now! If you are not able to secure an appointment with your advisor before your registration time, please register for your fall courses and then review your course selections with your advisor.

Option 1: Assigned Academic Advisor

All active students have an assigned academic advisor. Chances are good, they have already reached out to you with instructions for connecting with them.  If not, send them an email requesting those instructions.

To find your academic advisor's name and contact information:

  1. Log in to myMiami.
  2. Choose your Student tab located near the top of the screen.
  3. Your advisor will be listed in the top right corner.

Option 2: College of Arts and Science Academic Advisor

If you have questions that cannot be answered by your faculty advisor or you want to explore other majors in the College of Arts and Science, you should schedule an appointment with a CAS advisor.

Appointments will be conducted by video call using Google Chat, an online platform to which all Miami University students have access. We will also work to accommodate students on other platforms as necessary.

We realize you may have many questions. Check out the FAQ section on our website. Even though we are not physically in the office, you can still reach us by phone (513-529-3031) or by emailing We are also working on other communication methods, and we'll update you when those are available.

Please reach out if you have any questions. We wish you all the best during these challenging times.
