Required Application Materials

As a guidance counselor, you may need to provide the following materials for high school applicants. (Miami does not require the Common Application Mid-Year Report.)

  • Recommendation
    Miami requires one recommendation from either a guidance counselor or a teacher in an academic subject. 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. Either form can be submitted online at The recommendation must be submitted directly from the school official.
  • Official High School Transcript
    A transcript must be submitted by the high school. First and second semester senior courses must be listed on either the transcript or the Secondary School Report for an application to be considered complete. Miami encourages counselors to submit documents electronically, and we currently accept electronic transcripts via Common Application online, eSCRIP-SAFE, and Parchment Inc. (formerly Docufide).
    * Faxed transcripts are not accepted.
