Miami requires one recommendation from either a school counselor or a teacher in an academic subject. This recommendation can be a letter; the Common Application School Report (preferred), or the Common Application Teacher Evaluation.

High School Transcripts

At the time of application, we accept unofficial transcripts from students for admission, scholarship, and honors consideration. After they apply, students will be able to upload transcripts via their Miami Application Status Page.

Admitted students who confirm their enrollment must provide official, final transcripts with proof of high school graduation (graduation date included) by Aug. 1 of their enrolling year. Our preference is for final transcripts to be submitted through the Common Application, eSCRIP-SAFE, or Parchment.

Bridges Program

The Bridges Program was founded in 1981 by Black students who wanted to make a Miami degree more accessible, meaningful, and rewarding to high school students from diverse backgrounds. This two-day experience, offered four times each fall, attracts students from across the country and a broad spectrum of racial, ethnic, gender, and sexual identities to engage with current students, faculty, and staff.

INSIGHT Into Diversity awarded the Bridges Program the 2021 Inspiring Programs in STEM Award, recognizing the experiential learning opportunity for its unique and innovative efforts to improve access to science, technology, engineering, and math for underrepresented students.

Students who complete the program and enroll at Miami as first-year college students earn a Bridges scholarship, which last year ranged from $2,500 to $5,000 annually.

Contact the Bridges Program by email at Outreach@MiamiOH.edu or by phone at 513-529-2531.

Summer Scholars Program

This immersive, on-campus experience allows high-achieving high school students to learn in a college setting, engaging in hands-on academic activities that prepare them for college and future success. Tailored for rising juniors and seniors, this summer program is built for active learners with a keen interest in attending Miami University as undergraduates. They dive deeply into academic dialogues and build friendships with fellow students while living in student residence halls and participating in campus-life activities.

Participants gain valuable insight into the college admissions process, and when they apply to be first-year college students at Miami, they receive priority consideration for admission, scholarships, and selective programs.

Wiicinaakosioni Program

In collaboration with the Miami Tribe of Oklahoma, the Wiicinaakosioni Program provides high school seniors from underrepresented communities, and those with an appreciation for diversity, a virtual introduction to Miami University and its place in the diversity, equity, and inclusion landscape. Students attend pre-recorded and live virtual events, including live chats, tours of our Oxford campus, and educational sessions.

Students who complete the program and are admitted to Miami University are considered for merit scholarships.
