News and Updates

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, our advising processes have changed. 

The Regional Academic Advising office is open and able to assist students with advising and registration needs, however we are offering only remote advising appointments through January 19, 2021. We will begin conducting on-campus appointments after January 19. You must wear a mask and follow social distancing protocols to attend your on-campus appointment. 

Which Advisor Should I See? 

Option 1: Faculty Advisor

If you have a declared major, contact your faculty advisor. Faculty Advisors have the best information about major courses, research opportunities and employment options, and they will have the most up-to-date information regarding department course offerings for upcoming semesters.

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

  1. Log in to myMiami
  2. Click your Student tab located near the top of the screen
  3. Your advisor will be listed in the top right corner
Many faculty advisors do not use Navigate to schedule appointments. Please contact your faculty advisor as directed, by email or phone. Be sure to have a copy of your Degree Audit before you meet with your faculty advisor.

Option 2: Professional Advisor

If you are unsure of your major or cannot connect with your faculty advisor, contact the Regional Office of Academic Advising at 513-727-3440. Professional Advisors can help students with selecting a major, choosing classes and exploring career options.

Plan Ahead! During peak advising periods (October-November and March-April), you should schedule your advising appointment two or more weeks ahead.

Scheduling your Appointment

At Miami, professional advisors schedule appointments using the Navigate system. To schedule, visit MiamiOH.edu/Navigate

  1. Choose "Get Assistance" located beneath the Miami University logo
  2. Under Choose the type of appointment you would like, select "Academic Advising"
  3. Under Service, select "Regionals Academic Advising"
  4. Under Pick a Date, select the date that works best for your schedule
  5. Click "Find Available Time" and select  your appointment
    1. Select a specific advisor to see their available times, or
    2. Choose a specific time slot and the system will select an advisor available at that time
  6. On the Review Detail page in the Would you like to share anything else? box, please write:
    1. Your telephone number
    2. The reason for your appointment (it helps the advisor prepare)
  7. Choose "Schedule" to finalize your appointment

After scheduling, you'll receive an email confirmation that includes additional information and instructions.

If you are not familiar or comfortable with Navigate, you can call 513-727-3440 to schedule an appointment. You may need to leave a voicemail with your name, uniqueID, intended major and what you need help with.  Our office will call you back to schedule an appointment.  

Using Platforms Other than Zoom

When you schedule, you'll receive a confirmation email that gives you instructions on how to join the advisor's Zoom personal room for the appointment. Though our default is Zoom, we are able to meet with you using Google Meet or WebEx, or by phone call. If you prefer an alternate video-conferencing platform or a phone appointment, please mention it in the Would you like to share anything else? box, or, let your advisor know prior to the appointment by email. 

We offer more information for advisors and students about conducting remote advising appointments.

Option 3: On-Call Advisor

If you have a question, please email RegAdvising@miamiOH.edu or call the Regional Offices of Advising at 513-727-3440. Between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m., we have an on-call advisor who can answer your questions by phone and refer you for an appointment if necessary.
