UM in DC

Inauguration in DC


Take advantage of a wonderful opportunity to study, work, and live in Washington, D.C. in the Fall semester through the unique UM in DC Program! The University of Miami and American University have partnered to create an experiential program designed for University of Miami students who have been accepted for spring semester. These students will have the opportunity to live at American University in the Fall and take courses taught by professors from both institutions before enrolling full-time at the University of Miami in the spring semester.

As you know, college is about setting the foundation for your future, and what better way to start college than in a program that places you in the nation’s capital where you will gain valuable real-world work experience while studying at two of the nation’s top institutions. All program participants will have the rare opportunity to intern with one of the many different organizations around the city during their first semester as college freshman. Program participants will have access to American University amenities, mentors and advisors, as well as an on-the-ground University of Miami Program Coordinator to assist and guide them through their first college semester.

And when it’s time to pack up, you’ll leave American University and Washington, D.C. with 15 credits that will go with you to the University of Miami (so you can still be on track to graduate), real-world work experience, and a crew of life-long friends and mentors.
