Before applying, you should review the Academic Calendar and note that the Exchange Student Orientation typically takes place the day before the International Student Orientation. The academic calendars are accessible at http://www.miami.edu/index.php/registrar/calendar/. You should also make sure the courses you need for your degree are available at the University of Miami. You can view available courses online by clicking here. Click on the tab ‘Course Offerings’ and then select term and department. Our first semester or Fall term runs from August to December, and the second term or Spring semester runs from January to May. The courses are listed as a three letter code for the department and the course number (i.e. HIS 101) with a section letter. The section determines the exact day and time that the course meets, so you cannot be enrolled in two classes with the same section.
You cannot enroll in Music performance, Medical School, or Law School courses. Students coming on the undergraduate exchange are also not allowed to take 600-level classes, and can only enroll in 500-level classes with special permission of the instructor and department. In general, you can select 100-level through 400-level classes, for which you meet the pre-requisites. If you wish to take courses in Biochemistry or Civil, Architectural, Environmental, and Biomedical Engineering, you need to contact your UM advisor for approval prior to your arrival at UM. Also, neuroscience classes may not be available to exchange students due to limited space. Once the advisor at UM has received your application for exchange, we will be happy to answer your questions concerning course selection and registration. You can be pre-registered for courses at UM by submitting the course request form, which will be given to you after you have been admitted.
