Common Application


$50 Application Fee (non-refundable)

The application fee may be submitted online at CommonApp.org with a credit card, electronic transfer from a bank account, or through the mail with a check or money order made payable to Miami University. Online payments are made at the time of application submission. For students who qualify, an official fee waiver form may be submitted in lieu of the application fee. Students requesting a fee waiver must submit a waiver form from the College Board, the National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC), or a letter from a guidance counselor or representative of a social service/community agency stating that the fee would cause financial hardship.


Recommendation

A recommendation must be submitted by your counselor or an academic teacher on your behalf. This recommendation can be in the form of a letter; the Common Application School Report (preferred and completed by your counselor), completed by your counselor; or the Common Application Teacher Evaluation (completed by an academic teacher). Both forms can be submitted online at CommonApp.org. The recommendation must be submitted directly from the school official.

Only one recommendation is required.


Official High School Transcript

Your counselor must submit your official high school transcript electronically or by mail. A copy of your entire senior year course schedule must be included. We do not require the Common Application Mid-Year Report.


ACT/SAT Scores

Test scores must be sent directly from the testing agency (we do not require, nor use writing scores in our review process). You can request submission of these scores to Miami by contacting ACT or the College Board (SAT). Miami's ACT code is 3294; the SAT code is 1463.

No preference is given for ACT or SAT; Miami superscores, using the highest test scores submitted for admission and scholarship consideration. For ACT, the highest scores for each subscores from different exams will determine a combined highest composite score. For SAT the best Evidence-Based Reading and Writing (ERW) and Math (M) subscores will be used to calculate a maximum single score.
