Application Checklist

First-Year—Spring or Fall 2015

To apply for first-year admission, submit the following items online or send to the address below.

Common Application
  • Submit online
  • Early Decision candidates must also submit the Common Application Early Decision Agreement by November 15. If you have already submitted your Common Application and now wish to apply under Early Decision, you may do so by using Miami University's Early Decision Agreement (PDF 111KB).
$50 Application Fee (non-refundable)

The application fee may be submitted online at www.commonapp.org with a credit card or electronic funds transfer from a bank account, or through the mail with a check or money order made payable to Miami University. Online application fee payments are made at the time of submission of the Common Application. 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), completed by your counselor; or the Common Application Teacher Evaluation, completed by an academic teacher. Both forms can be submitted online at www.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

These scores must be sent directly from the testing agency (we do not require, nor use the writing section in our review). 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. (For admission and review purposes, no preference is given for ACT or SAT; Miami uses the highest test score submitted. For ACT, the best single composite score is used; for SAT, the best Critical Reading and Math sub-scores are used.)
