Orientation Registration and Start
All new incoming international graduate students are automatically registered and expected to attend the international student orientation and welcome session beginning the morning of August 18. (If you previously studied at Miami as an international student, you are also welcome to join.)
More details about how to confirm your arrival and upload documents will be shared in upcoming newsletters.
Submit Your Final Transcripts
All new graduate students must have a final official transcript sent to Miami University from all institutions attended, beginning with your bachelor's degree. (Applicants who earned a Miami degree or took Miami courses are not required to request/send transcripts from Miami University to itself.)
Documents should include both the original language and certified literal English language translation of document(s) that lists all the college-level courses you have taken, as well as grades received in each course and the dates of your attendance. This document must bear an original signature of the appropriate authority at the institution(s) attended and also bear that institution's official seal or stamp.
Miami accepts the following original documents:
A transcript sent directly from the school to Miami University Graduate Admission that shows you earned your Bachelor's degree and/or academic record.
- A transcript submitted in a sealed envelope to Miami University Graduate Admission that shows you earned your Bachelor's degree and/or academic record.
Have your previous institution(s) send final official transcript(s) to:
Miami University Graduate Admission
Nellie Craig Walker Hall
301 S. Campus Ave
Oxford, OH 45056
or by email to Grad_Transcripts@MiamiOH.edu
If you had final official transcripts sent to the Graduate School when you applied for admission, you do not need to send them again. You can log into your applicant status portal to check the status of your official transcript(s).
Students who do not submit final official transcripts will have a Hold placed on their record and will not be allowed to register for classes after the first semester.
July 13 Info Session: Health, Finances, and iPOL Q&A
From 10am-10:30am ET, join ISSS and Aetna health insurance for a presentation on required medical documents, initial health center visit, and questions about U.S. health insurance.

Submit Your Photo and other Pre-Arrival Tasks
To access many Miami University resources, including on campus rooms, meal plan, library, recreation center, and more, a Miami University Digital ID will be issued to you.
In order to access your Miami Digital ID, you should submit a photo through the GET phone app.
Make sure you have reviewed the ISSS Orientation website and are also completing all the necessary tasks to prepare for your arrival.
For off-campus living, please take time to consider your options and remember that a lease is a legal contract so you should clarify any questions or concerns with property management before signing (for example: move-in date, deposits, repair procedures, etc.)
Housing accommodations should be arranged BEFORE arrival.
