Not sure what program is best for you?
Meet with your academic adviser to see where study abroad best fits into your degree program.
Watch the Study Abroad 101 video, or attend a Study Abroad 101 group information session offered on Mondays from 4:00 pm - 4:30 pm in 115 MacMillan Hall during the academic year to hear about the different types of programs. You can also schedule an appointment with a study abroad adviser.
How will financial aid apply and what additional aid can I get?
Plan ahead by talking to a financial aid adviser in the Office of Student Financial Assistance about your aid package and how it could be applied to different types of study abroad programs. It may be possible to increase your award but first it is important to understand your current financial aid situation. For additional information see Financing.
Talk to others!
Obviously it is important to discuss this decision with your parents, but if you'd like to talk to students who have previously studied in that country, city, or program, review the Study Abroad Contact List posted in 225 MacMillan Hall.
Using your study abroad courses.
If you are going to be transferring credit from another university, you'll want to schedule an appointment with the Chief Department Advisor (CDA) of your department to make sure you are going to meet the specific requirements at Miami.
If you want to fulfill Miami Plan requirements, meet with a divisional adviser (College of Arts and Science, Farmer School of Business, etc.) If you want to create a self-designed thematic sequence, contact the Office of Liberal Education for more information.
