Academic Advising

Miami University advances a learner-centered advising system. In this type of system, the advisor sees every opportunity in which a student makes a choice as a learning opportunity and assists the student in steadily gaining ownership over the college experience.

In addition to having a primary academic advisor, Miami students are provided with a network of faculty and staff who are committed to their success throughout their undergraduate experience. This success network includes faculty and staff academic advisors, divisional academic advisors, and other academic support and career-related offices.

Academic advisors provide guidance on the Global Miami Plan for Liberal Education, divisional and major requirements, choosing a major, career planning and, when appropriate, they also make referrals to appropriate campus support offices.
