Miami offers merit scholarships to qualified high school students who enroll full-time on Miami's Oxford campus beginning in the fall semester. Students will be considered based on scholarship availability at the time they apply. Dec. 1 is the priority application deadline to be considered for Miami's merit scholarships. Miami does not require the submission of ACT or SAT scores for first-year students applying for 2025 enrollment.

To be considered for a scholarship, students must complete their application (including transcript and recommendation) by the priority deadline and meet the minimum academic criteria. No separate scholarship application is necessary to be considered for most Miami merit scholarships. Scholarships are not guaranteed and are based on academic credentials provided at the time of application.
