Fall 2017: Graduate Students

Graduate students at institutions in Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and other Caribbean territories whose studies were interrupted due to recent hurricanes, may be eligible to enroll as visiting students at the University of Miami until their home institutions are operational. 

Students have the option of auditing a course or enrolling in a one-credit independent study. Students whose thesis or dissertation research has been interrupted due to recent hurricanes may be able to conduct research in a University of Miami laboratory.  Students interested in auditing a course, enrolling in a one-credit independent study, or conducting research should contact the Graduate School at 305-284-4154 or via email at graduateschool@miami.edu for additional information.

International students who plan to attend the University of Miami in the fall or spring semester will need to request a Form I-20 from the University of Miami. International students in F-1 or J-1 status currently attending a University in Puerto Rico will need to complete the SEVIS Transfer Process.

We will be waiving graduate tuition and the following mandatory fees: Activity Fee, Student Center Fee, and the Wellness Center Fee. The Student Health and Counseling Fee is a mandatory fee that will be assessed and reflected on the student’s bill. Additionally graduate students* will be required to provide proof of health insurance or purchase health insurance through the University of Miami.

*Graduate students who are either only conducting research in a University of Miami laboratory or auditing a course will not be required to provide proof of health insurance or purchase health insurance through the University of Miami.  Students will have the option of purchasing the University of Miami policy as a visiting scholar through Wells Fargo.
