Miami University's regional locations welcome transfer students seeking to complete one of several degrees exclusive to the regional locations, or students seeking to relocate to complete degrees offered at the Oxford campus.

You are a transfer student if you have attended another regionally accredited college or university after high school and enrolled in one or more courses.

Admission Policy

Admission is based on your grade point average (on a 4.0 scale), including courses which have been repeated. Transfer students are required to have at least a 2.0 cumulative GPA at their previous institution(s) or have been out of college for at least two years.

If you do not meet these requirements, please contact our Admission Counselors for further information.

Miami Regionals Merit Scholarships

Incoming Transfer students are considered for merit scholarships based on a holistic review of incoming transfer credits and average GPA earned on those credits. First consideration for transfer scholarships will be given to CLAAS degree seeking students.

To be considered for transfer merit scholarships a complete Admission application—Admission application and all prior transcripts—must be on file by the following deadlines:

Fall transfer students: May 1.
Spring transfer students: December 1.

Transfer merit scholarships will apply to the academic year in which the student has applied for Admission. If a student delays their enrollment from the initial application scholarship awards are not guaranteed. Scholarships are awarded based on full time enrollment for an academic year. If a student is enrolled less than full time the award will be prorated accordingly. If a student is awarded a scholarship for the regional campuses then relocates to the Oxford campus, the student will no longer be eligible for the regional campus scholarship(s).


The data in the table below are based on full time, undergraduate, Ohio Resident tuition rates as of 2018-2019. Please refer to Miami Regionals undergraduate tuition rates on the OneStop website. Regional campus transfer merit awards as of Fall 2018, are based on the tuition promise rates for the 2018 cohort.
