Transfer Orientation

Orientation is required for Miami transfer students, particularly because it serves as the vehicle for transfer student advising and course registration (but also because it helps students and families have a smooth and positive transition to Miami!).

Orientation for new students entering fall 2020 will be facilitated online via Canvas, Miami's online learning platform. The orientation Canvas site will launch in mid-May; all transfer students must register for orientation in order to be invited to the Canvas site.

Through orientation, transfer students will build important connections with student leaders, faculty and staff, and the Miami community; learn about their academic curriculum and important resources and opportunities; set goals; and register for fall classes. The online format will allow transfer students to engage with most orientation materials when it is convenient for them; they will arrange meetings with orientation leaders and academic advisors at times that fit into their schedule. 

Orientation materials for parents and family members will be delivered online as well; transfer students should include family members and guests when registering for orientation, and we'll send them family orientation materials.
