Admission Requirements

Miami University's Farmer School of Business is annually recognized as one of the nation's best undergraduate business schools. Each year, the number of first-year applications for the Farmer School of Business (FSB) exceeds the number of spaces available. Admission to the FSB is competitive and based on a holistic and comprehensive review process which considers many factors to establish the context of students' achievements and demonstrated potential to be successful in its rigorous curriculum.

For Fall 2016, the middle 50% of students gaining direct entry into the FSB held an ACT Composite Score of 28-32 and/or a SAT score of 1250-1400 (based on old SAT Scoring of Critical Reading + Math). In addition, the middle 50% held a GPA of 3.65-4.15 (on a 4.0 scale). Twenty-five percent of the students offered direct admission had an academic profile that exceeded these ranges and 25% had a profile that fell below. The academic qualifications required for admission are wholly dependent on the strength of the applicant pool, and we encourage applications from candidates with diverse backgrounds.

Upon admission to the Farmer School, students will pay tuition and fees set by Miami University, as well as an additional per-credit hour business surcharge for most business courses. For detailed information, visit the Office of the Bursar.
