Ranking 47th, Miami has been identified as a best value in Kiplinger's annual list of the "100 Best Values in Public Colleges" (2013). Miami has appeared as a top 100 value every year since the first list was published in 1998.
The first step in the financial aid process is completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). By completing the FAFSA, you are applying for all financial aid, including grants, scholarships, loans, and federal work-study. Miami's priority deadline to file the FAFSA for transfer students is March 15.
Admitted transfer students are also automatically considered for the following merit-based scholarship opportunities:
- Phi Theta Kappa (PTK)
