Before you enter the US, please make sure to complete the InterLink eform "Oxford Only - Arrival Information." After you arrive in the US, but before you arrive to campus, please try to complete the "Document Submission" InterLink eform, in which you will submit the required entry documents (passport, visa, and I-94 entry record). If you need help with completing this form, ISSS staff will assist you when you check in.
If you need to move-in prior to your assigned move-in day, complete the "Exceptional Housing Need - Early Arrival" form.
When you arrive to campus, check-in with ISSS at MacMillan Hall. Please enter through the middle back doors via the Maple Street parking lot. You will receive specific check-in instructions, including quarantine procedures if needed, before your arrival. 

Information for those planning to Study from Outside the US 

The offices and campus support resources covered in previous Orientation newsletters are available to help with your transition to college as a Miami Student.
