Important Reminders

ISSS InterLink E-forms 

All new international students need to complete the InterLink e-form to confirm Spring 2021 study plans. The form is located under "Spring 2021" in the menu on the left, and then "Spring 2021 Study Plan Confirmation" after logging in. This form must be submitted by January 25, but should ideally be submitted by January 15 (today).

Online Orientation in Canvas  

The online orientation program includes vital information for your success as a student at Miami University. In Module Two, students will learn important information about maintaining your immigration status, Miami University policies, academic and campus resources, staying healthy and safe, and many other topics. Please complete these modules soon if you have not done so already. You will have access to this course throughout your first semester, and we hope that this program will be a helpful resource during your transition to Miami. Please note that all new international students studying in US will need to complete a comprehensive knowledge check to complete the orientation.
