Remote Orientation Details

Ready for more details about orientation? We've got them for you! Check out the new Remote Orientation website -- your guide for navigating the orientation process this summer. Your access to  orientation materials begins on May 13; make sure to register if you're not already.

Remote orientation includes several important steps that must be completed in order. Orientation and Transition Programs staff will support new students throughout this process with regular reminders and outreach, typically via email.

Review the New Student Guidebook
The New Student Guidebook is a reference guide that will introduce you to the Global Miami Plan (GMP) and help you navigate advising and registration before, during, and even after the orientation process. It not only explains the GMP, but lists each course that satisfies GMP requirements.
You should review the Guidebook online before your academic advising appointment (scheduled through the orientation process) in order to be most prepared to register for fall classes at orientation.  As you review the New Student Guidebook, write down any questions you have, and be ready to discuss your questions during your scheduled advising appointment.  Many of your questions will be answered while progressing through the remote orientation modules (available May 13). We recommend that you focus on the following sections as you prepare for your academic advising appointment:
  • Understanding the Miami curriculum: p. 16
  • Preparing for registration: p. 24
  • Determining credit earned and course placement: p. 28
  • List of courses that meet each Global Miami Plan requirement: p. 58 (with corresponding course descriptions beginning on p. 78)
  • Suggested first-year courses for each major: p. 116
