New First-Year and Transfer Student Registration

Welcome to the University of Miami (UM) School of Nursing and Health Studies (SONHS)! We are very excited you decided to join us.

As a new student, we know you are focused on making your transition to the University of Miami as smooth as possible.  Our office, the Office of Student Services (OSS), works closely with all students to empower them to take charge of their education and encourage them to prepare for the future, even before they arrive on campus.  The goal is to educate students early on so they may participate fully in all aspects of their UM experience and so they become well-equipped to engage in the future of health science, nursing, and public health as well-rounded, culturally competent individuals.

We also understand that you may have a lot of questions regarding advising, registration, and how your transfer credits or AP/IB credits will apply toward your major. Rest assured that all those questions will be answered, and you will be able to connect with your Transitional Advisor in the next few weeks.  

In the meantime, follow the steps outlined below: 


Step 1: Read through the University’s New Student Registration website

Step 2: Check your UM email so you don’t miss out on important information from our advisors.

Step 3: Provide proxy access to your parent(s) or other individuals who may contact the University on your behalf.

Step 4: Become familiar with your Major and Plan of Study.

BSHS - Health Sciences Major Requirements

BSPH - Public Health Major Requirements

BSN - Traditional Nursing Major Requirements

Step 5:
Become familiar with CaneLink before registration day.

Note: Use the CaneLink tip sheets and tutorials to learn how to search, add and register for classes.
