Advising Resources for Students

The University of Miami provides several resources for students and sometimes it is difficult to know what different systems and websites are used for, as a new student.

Information for Academic Planning

Open All Tabs
  • Academic Bulletin

    • The University of Miami Academic Bulletin is home to all University academic-related policies and requirements for all academic programs. 
    • The academic year a student enters the University, is their "bulletin year," and should be aware that the bulletin website opens to the current bulletin year. For example, if a student enters in Fall 2017, their bulletin year is 2017-2018. If they enter Spring 2018, their bulletin year is still 2017-2018, however, if a student enters in Fall 2018, their bulletin year is 2018-2019, and so forth.
    • Previous bulletins can be found through the side navigation.
