International Scholar Orientation
International Scholar Orientation is a program for new University of Miami international scholars (professors and researchers), which provides information that will assist them in their transition to living and conducting their academic endeavors in the U.S. Participants are provided information on immigration rules international scholars must follow to stay in the U.S., local community resources, life and customs in the U.S., health insurance requirements, and emergency assistance. International Scholar Orientation is held by International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) on a weekly basis. Upon your arrival at the University of Miami, please contact ISSS to schedule an appointment for your scholar orientation. ISSS will notify you via e-mail of the date and time of your appointment for scholar orientation.
