Hi there,
Welcome to the fall semester! We are happy to see students back in town, and look forward to providing another semester of learning and connecting—including virtually. Please follow #HealthyTogether protocols when you visit us at MacMillan Hall. Not all staff will be in the building every day, so call ahead for an appointment.
Passport services reopened on Aug. 17 by appointment only. Because expedited service is unavailable at this time, apply now if you plan to study or travel abroad during the 2020-21 school year. Email Global@MiamiOH.edu or phone 513-529-8600 to set up your appointment.
Applications are open for Winter and Summer 2021 Faculty-Led programming, and new workshops are still being added. Visit Education Abroad to #FindYourPlace.
Remote advising appointments will continue to be available through fall semster for both Education Abroad and International Student and Scholar Services. Staff can be reached by email or phone. For general information, reach out to global@miamioh.edu or call our main line at (513) 529-8600.
