First-Year Students' Road to UM

Freshmen, welcome to the 'Cane Family! To ensure a smooth transition to your new life as a Miami Hurricane, please read the information below.

Step #1

Your Academic Advisor will email you to find out your:

  • Choice of degree (BBA, BSBA, or BSAF)
  • Possible major
  • AP/IB test scores, and/or dual enrollment course credit, and any transfer credit(s) you intend to bring with you.

Step #2

Reply to the advisor's email as soon as possible to begin the process of creating a schedule. If you do not respond to the advising team’s email, you will NOT be registered for courses in a timely manner.

Step #3

  • Do not put classes in your shopping cart in CaneLink!
  • Registering for your first semester at the Miami Herbert Business School is simple because a Miami Herbert advisor will enroll you in the courses you need.
  • Advanced Placement exam scores and dual enrollment/transfer credits may help you earn course credit, but we cannot make any final recommendations until the scores and credits are submitted to the University. However, if you send us a scanned copy of your results to your advisor, it will help in your math and English placement. Once we have this information, we will complete the enrollment process for your first semester.

A Typical First Semester Course Schedule 

  1. 2-3 of the following foundational business courses:
    BSL 212 Introduction to Business Law and Ethics
    BTE 210 Fundamentals of Business Technology and Innovation
    ECO 211 Principles of Microeconomics
    ECO 212 Principles of Macroeconomics
    MGT 100 Managing for Success in the Global Marketplace
    MKT 201 Foundations of Marketing
  2. English Composition I or II based on standardized test scores, AP/IB scores, dual enrollment.
  3. Mathematics or Management Science (MAS 110) based on standardized test scores, AP/IB scores, dual enrollment or the ALEKS Math Placement Assessment.
    All undergraduate business students are required to enroll in English Composition and Mathematics (or Management Science) each semester at Miami Herbert until the relevant sequences are completed.  These core requirements must be completed no later than the fourth semester.  MGT 100 must be completed within the first two semesters at Miami Herbert.
    *Business students who have credit for ECO 211 and ECO 212 may consider enrolling in a business elective such as HMP 270 Introduction to Health Sector Management & Policy or BUS 201 Money.
  4. All business students should explore the academic bulletin to pre-select a non-business course as an elective e.g., a modern language, studio art or photography, gender studies, international relations, sustainability, or any other area of personal interest. 

Looking Forward

On May 20, at 5 p.m., Miami Herbert will be hosting the “Getting Started on the Right Foot” session via Zoom. Please RSVP:  
At this session, you will have the opportunity, as a group, to meet your academic advisor and briefly ask any urgent questions you may still have about the registration process.
