Orientation Registration

Register for Summer Orientation 2017 »

All confirmed, domestic first year students will receive a brochure via mail with details about orientation. Students must confirm admission to Miami University via the Applicant Status Page prior to registering for orientation. Once you confirm your admission, it will take 12-24 hours for your information to be imported into the orientation registration system. 

Starting on March 17 at 1pm (EST), students may register for an orientation session through the red button above, or through the myMiami portal. (Login to myMiami using your student Unique ID and password. If you need help logging in to myMiami, see myMiami Login Help.) After logging in to myMiami, click on the 'Welcome' tab, and you will see the option to register for Summer orientation on the checklist on the upper-left portion of the page. This checklist will also indicate when you have successfully registered for the program; each student and registered guest will also receive a confirmation email. NOTE: You may see a health and/or advising hold on your account in myMiami; these holds are normal for all new students, and will not prevent you from registering for orientation.

Orientation sessions fill up on a first-come, first-served basis, and do NOT have waiting lists, so new students should register early and be as flexible as possible with their availability. If you are not able to attend a summer orientation session, that's ok! We offer one orientation session in August, just prior to first year move-in. Registration for the August orientation session opens in July, but if you know you will attend August orientation before then, please contact the Office of Orientation and Transition Programs at 513-529-9771 or email orientation@MiamiOH.edu, and we will reserve your place in that program.

NOTE: One common misperception is that students who attend later orientation sessions will have significant difficulty registering for classes. In reality, seats in the most common first-year courses are released for each orientation session, including August orientation, so students who attend later sessions and August orientation are not at a disadvantage.
