Advising

Students are assigned a faculty or staff academic advisor in their department or division of major in the fall semester of their first year. Once an academic advisor is assigned, he/she typically becomes the student's primary academic advisor for the duration of their career at Miami. For more information on Miami University’s advising policies and practices see Academic Advising.
