Attendance Policy

Consistent with the Miami University Graduate Student Handbook, “Every student is expected to attend every class session for which the student is duly registered.” Because there are so few class meetings/live sessions, the importance of them is more significant than in traditional courses. Instructors may choose to incorporate various types of course activities during the sessions, thus any absence from these sessions diminishes the learning opportunity for students and may impact the final grade for the course. Please consult the SEOH student handbook for the program attendance policy and your responsibilities regarding absences.

Winter Registration

Students are encouraged to register well-before the winter term begins on January 2, 2019. Registration should be available now for all continuing students. New students will be allowed to register for the winter term beginning at 9AM, September 17. Please be aware that the Department of Teacher Education is offering 3 sections of reading literacy courses this winter. Two of the courses are offered in a hybrid format, one is entirely online. Contact Lesley if you're interested in working either of these courses into your plan of study. Any registration issue must be resolved by contacting the One Stop office. 

Job Search

Students interested in employment services are encouraged to register with Handshake. Handshake is Miami's online job board where you can conduct many career related activities maintained by The Center for Career Exploration & Success. Handshake lists positions from local, national, and international organizations. It also serves as the portal through which students schedule appointments with their career advisors and mock interviewers, and is the first place to check for job fairs, interviews, and other career-related events on campus. On a related note, passionate high school Intervention Specialists are needed at the K12 partner school, Ohio Virtual Academy. See its openings for the 2018 -2019 school year. 

Prospective Student Visits

Prospective students interested in learning more about joining the SEOH program cohort in the spring 2019 semester are encouraged to contact the SEOH Program Office. For anyone wishing to see our Voice of America Learning Center facilities and possibly sit-in on a class, we are now making appointments for Saturday, September 15. Additional meetings at other times are also available.
