Eligibility

Current Miami Students

Current Miami students planning to apply to the Miami University Dolibois European Center (MUDEC) program should meet the following requirements:

  • Min 2.5 Miami GPA
  • Currently a full-time student in good academic and disciplinary standing; prior disciplinary violations will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis and are not an automatic disqualifier
  • Have completed two semesters at Miami (by start of desired MUDEC term)

Students Currently Enrolled at Other US Institutions of Higher Learning

Current students from other US institutions planning to apply to the Miami University Dolibois European Center (MUDEC) program should meet the following requirements:

  • Min 2.5 GPA at home institution
  • Currently a full-time student in good academic and disciplinary standing; prior disciplinary violations will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis and are not an automatic disqualifier
  • Prior to admission to MUDEC, apply to Miami University as a transient student and be accepted. Reach out to Luxembourg@MiamiOH.edu to start the process.

In addition to the eligibility criteria listed, students will be evaluated based on the strength of their overall application. All applicants are considered based on the merits of their overall package.

Timing

All students at Miami University and other US institutions of higher education are encouraged to participate in the MUDEC program after having completed at least two semesters of college.

When determining the best term to study at MUDEC, students should consider sequencing of classes and completion of degree requirements. Most students study at MUDEC their junior year, however, we do have many sophomores and seniors at MUDEC as well. We strongly recommend that first-year students begin planning for a semester in Luxembourg as soon as possible, because an increasing number of students are finding that the best term to study at MUDEC is during sophomore year.

Students should be sure to check with an academic advisor regarding specific academic planning for a summer and/or semester program at MUDEC, then apply 6-9 months prior to the desired term of study.

How to Apply: Students from Miami

Applications for MUDEC are online! Please visit MUDEC program application page.

Applications

All applications for the summer and the following school year are available in late-August, when students return to campus. We strongly encourage students to apply early.

Online Application Tips

Personal essay: Think carefully about why you want to study in Europe, and please proofread carefully. It is beneficial to first write your essay in a word processor (e.g., Word), then copy/paste it into your application. Be sure to respond fully to each question.

How to Apply: Students from Other Institutions

Not a Miami University student? You are still welcome to apply to participate in the Miami University Dolibois European Center (MUDEC) program. Be sure to check with the study abroad office at your home university to find out their process for transferring credit from study abroad programs. Upon completion of the program and coursework, students will receive a transcript from Miami University.

Applying to MUDEC

To apply, complete the following steps:

  1. Complete the MUDEC application. There are some items in this application that cannot be completed until other steps below have been addressed. Complete all of the study abroad application items that you are able to complete before proceeding to the next steps.
  2. In addition to the MUDEC application, complete the Visiting or Transient application for Miami University's Office of Admission.

Please note: To be considered for admission to the MUDEC program, you must first provide a Letter of Acceptance to Miami University issued by the Miami Office of Admissions. Once the MUDEC Office receives this letter, we will make an admission decision for your application, provided all other items are complete. Contact the Luxembourg Coordinator if you have questions about this process.

Advising

Advising meetings for students from other institutions can be conducted over the telephone or by web video conference. To schedule an appointment, call (513-529-8600) or email (luxembourg@MiamiOH.edu).

We understand that it can be difficult to navigate two different university systems, that of the home institution and Miami. We will do everything we can to assist, but it is highly recommended that students from other institutions consult with their home study abroad office to understand what processes are required to be permitted to study abroad on a non-institutional program.
