Arrival and First Day in Miami
Your Arrival in Miami
You can arrange for an airport pick-up from Miami International Airport (MIA) or Orlando International Airport (MCO) with EC. A driver will meet you at the airport, so look out for him holding up a sign with your name on it.
If you require an airport transfer, you must let us know seven days in advance. The charge for a one-way transfer is $125 (plus $20 for arrivals between 12am and 7am) for MIA.
If you do not use an EC transfer, you can find prices and times for public transportation to and from MIA here.

Health insurance coverage is required for all students to attend class at EC Miami. Students will need to provide proof of insurance on their first day. Insurance should be purchased in advance of their arrival and documentation need to be brought to the school on the first day. If students do not, they will be required to purchase health insurance from EC Miami.
On your first day you will take a placement test to determine your English ability and which class level you will be placed in. After the test there is a short talk made by EC Miami staff explaining all the useful information you will need to know during your stay. Depending on your course, you may start school on the first day at 12:45 or the following day.
