Make an Appointment

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

We will not be offering drop-in advising during this registration period; all advising will take place by appointment. Appointments will be conducted by video call using Google Chat, an online platform to which all Miami University students have access. A camera is not required to use this platform.

  • Users who anticipate or experience a disability related barrier to using Google Chat are encouraged to contact to request reasonable accommodation. Webex may be used as an alternative platform for hearing accommodations.
  • If you are unable to access Google, please contact us (513-529-3031) to request an appointment via a different medium.

If you do not currently have a declared major in the College of Arts and Science, please contact us (513-529-3031) to request an appointment, as our online system will not allow you access to our schedules.
