Staying Connected with Updates: MiamiOH.edu Email
Your MiamiOH.edu email is the official channel through which you will receive communications from the offices, faculty, and staff at Miami University. Please make sure you have access to your MiamiOH.edu email.
Your Unique ID and Password will be used to sign in / log in to many systems. So, make sure you have committed these to memory. Read more in the next section about how to use your Unique ID and Password to access Miami tech systems.
Chat with IT Services for any questions or issues with accessing Miami Tech.
Accessing Miami Tech: Duo Two-Factor Authentication
In order to access Miami University resources, you will need to be enrolled in Duo, our two-factor authentication tool. When you first try to log in to a Miami resource (email, myMiami, BannerWeb, Canvas, etc.), you will be prompted to enroll in Duo. Then, whenever you log in to your Miami accounts after that, you will be asked to authenticate with Duo.
Some new international students may have to take the English Placement Test (EPT) and/or the Speaking Proficiency English Assessment Kit (SPEAK) test.
Students who need to complete placement tests will receive more information on when and how to do so in their University email, so please keep regularly checking your MiamiOH.edu email inbox.
Connect with Your Department
Many graduate departments offer their own specialized orientation programs, so make sure you are in contact with your departmental leaders for any other necessary orientation procedures and processes for course registration.
All new international students must complete the orientation program, which is comprised of:
online modules via Canvas (Miami's Learning Management System)
- in-person sessions on Miami's Oxford, Ohio campus
We understand that you have many questions about your arrival to campus. Please keep checking your inbox for emails from international@MiamiOH.edu that will help answer many of your questions as you begin your journey to Miami University.
Start reviewing the ISSS Orientation website and complete all necessary tasks to prepare for your arrival.

Miami's name comes from the Myaamia people.
Miami University is located within the traditional homelands of the Myaamia and Shawnee people, who, along with other indigenous groups, ceded these lands to the United States in the first Treaty of Greenville in 1795. The Miami people, whose name our university carries, were forcibly removed from these homelands in 1846.
In 1972, a relationship between Miami University and the Miami Tribe of Oklahoma began and evolved into a reciprocal partnership, including the creation of the Myaamia Center at Miami University in 2001. The work of the Myaamia Center serves the Miami Tribe community and is dedicated to the revitalization of Miami language and culture and to restoring that knowledge to the Myaamia people.
