The Education Trust and The New York Times has identified Miami as a model college for our outstanding graduation rate, crediting our success, in part, to "tracking student progress and giving students more access to professors."
Our graduation rates are among the highest nationally, in the top 10 among public universities (excluding military academies), and first in Ohio.
