August Orientation Fees

Nearly all costs for orientation are already included in student tuition & fees. 

Orientation Housing Charges

Because first-year students attending August orientation will move into their residence hall rooms one night before first-year student housing opens, they will be charged an early arrival housing fee. The Office of Orientation and Transition Programs will submit a housing request at the group rate (amount TBD) for your stay on August 22. Should you choose to move to campus earlier than August 22, you may request early arrival housing through the MyCard portal.  Please contact the Housing Options, Meals, and Events (HOME) Office at 513-529-5000 with any questions.

Please note: students who register for August orientation and do not check-in and attend the orientation program will still be charged the early arrival housing fee.


Student meal plans begin on Thursday, August 23. Student meals are not included during August orientation, but you can use cash or credit to purchase meals at dining locations in the Armstrong Student Center.

If you have questions about orientation fees, please contact the Office of Orientation and Transition Programs by calling 513-529-9771 or emailing orientation@MiamiOH.edu.
