Code of Love and Honor.
in the ideal collegiate setting. This booklet will
guide you through your next steps.
I am Miami.
I believe that a liberal education is grounded in qualities of
character and intellect.
I stand for honesty, integrity, and the importance of moral conduct.
I respect the dignity, rights, and property of others and their
right to hold and express disparate beliefs.
I defend the freedom of inquiry that is the heart of learning.
I exercise good judgment and believe in personal responsibility.
I welcome a diversity of people, ideas, and experiences.
I embrace the spirit, academic rigor, opportunities, and
challenges of a Miami Experience, preparing me to make the
world a better place.
I demonstrate Love and Honor by supporting and caring for
my fellow Miamians.
And because I Am Miami, I act through my words and deeds
in ways that reflect these values and beliefs.
With a deep sense of accomplishment and gratitude,
I will Love, Honor, and make proud those who help me earn the
joy and privilege of saying,
“To think that in such a place, I led such a life.”

Our Miami family is eager to welcome you!
Begin your Miami experience at Transfer Student Orientation.
The Office of New Student Programs offers two Transfer Student Orientation programs during the year: in January for students
transferring for the spring semester and again in August for students transferring in the fall semester. Attending a Transfer Student
Orientation program will help you become more confident, comfortable, connected, and curious as a Miami student. You will learn about
campus resources and involvement opportunities, discover Miami’s history and traditions, meet other new transfer students, and connect
with faculty and staff members.
All new transfer students are encouraged to come to Transfer Student Orientation, including those who go directly through an academic
division to receive advising and register for courses. If you are not able to meet with an adviser and register for classes through your
academic division, you must attend Transfer Student Orientation to do so.
When Miami receives your confirmation deposit ($95 for students living in non-university housing or commuting, $425 for students living
in university housing), the office will send you information on how to register for a Transfer Student Orientation program.
Transfer Student Orientation occurs before classes begin for the semester in which you are transferring. If you participate in the
orientation program, you can move into your university housing up to one day before orientation begins. The orientation program
is in the afternoon, followed by social programming in the evening. The following day, you’ll meet with academic advisers and register
for your first semester classes at Miami if you have not already done so. You can find additional orientation information at
MiamiOH.edu/orientation.
If you need additional information about Transfer Student Orientation, call 513-529-9771 or email [email protected]
Special opportunities for transfer students.
Get involved in Miami’s Transfer Ambassador Organization.
Get connected with the Miami community through the Miami University Transfer Ambassador Organization. Through social and
community activities, you’ll meet other new transfer students and learn the ropes from other students who have transferred. For more
information, email [email protected]
Take a one-credit course for transfer students.
Make the most of your Miami experience, learn about ways to get involved, and develop strategies for success. “The University and
the Student” is a one-credit elective course just for transfer students. You’ll get an introduction to the intellectual, social, and cultural
nature of Miami and connect with other new transfers. This optional, discussion-based course meets during the first eight weeks of the
semester and is recorded as credit/no credit. You can sign up by emailing [email protected]u or when you register for Transfer
Student Orientation.

CONFIRM YOUR ENROLLMENT.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS.
How do I select a meal plan and a living-learning community?
Confirm by the date listed in your acceptance letter.
After Miami receives your confirmation deposit, you’ll be given access to request university housing. We encourage you to complete and
submit this contract within three weeks after being accepted to ensure that your choices are considered when the majority of students
are assigned to their living-learning communities. Students who don’t submit the contract may be assigned to a living-learning
community where space is available and will be assigned the most common meal plan. You can find information about living-learning
communities at MiamiOH.edu/living and meal plans at MiamiOH.edu/mealplans. For information about living in non-university housing,
please visit MiamiOH.edu/accepted.
We are excited about your decision to attend Miami! All new students are required to submit a deposit: $425 if you’re living in university
housing, which includes the $330 Residence Hall and Meal Plan Contract Deposit and $95 admission fee. It’s $95 if you’re living in
non-university housing or commuting. The Office of Admission does not refund any portion of the confirmation deposit to students
who choose not to attend Miami University. For students living in university housing, the Residence Hall and Meal Plan Contract Deposit
of $330, less any unpaid charges, will be applied retroactively toward your final academic term fees.
Why is a final transcript required if I’ve already been accepted?
Your acceptance is being granted on a provisional basis. You must submit a final transcript of all college work taken prior to the start of
classes at Miami. Your final transcript must indicate that you remain in good standing in all respects with a minimum 2.0 cumulative grade
point average. This transcript must be received in the Office of Admission by August 1 for students starting in the fall and January 2 for
students starting in the spring. If you are unable to submit your final transcript by this date, you must contact the Office of Admission
with verification of satisfactory academic progress. Upon receipt of the transcript or verification, if we find you do not meet these
provisions, your acceptance may be canceled and your deposit refunded.
Please note you can also confirm your enrollment online at MiamiOH.edu/accepted. Choose your student type, then click on the
Confirm Enrollment link to submit your confirmation deposit online.
If you would like to confirm your enrollment via postal mail, please complete the form below and mail it and a check ($425 if you’re
living in university housing; $95 if you’re living in non-university housing or commuting) made payable to Miami University to: Office of
Admission, Miami University, 301 S. Campus Avenue, Oxford, OH 45056-3434.
By confirming enrollment to Miami, I agree that, unless specifically exempted, I am required to live in university housing* my first and
second years at Miami, pay associated costs and fees, and abide by all rules and policies. (For more information about rules and policies,
please visit MiamiOH.edu/housing/policies.)

SCHOLARSHIPS AND FINANCIAL AID.

enrollment or Dec. 1 for spring enrollment) will be considered on a
