Transfer—Fall and Spring Semesters

To apply for transfer admission, submit the following items online or send to the address below.

Transfer Application or Common Application

Miami is proud to provide two application options for transfer students. You may apply by using either Miami's transfer application or the transfer Common Application.

Complete the accessible version of Transfer Application for Admission if you need an accessible, ADA-compliant or Section 508-compliant version of the application. If you need additional assistance, the Office of Admission is available to help you complete the application for admission. You may email us at or call us at 513-529-2531.

$50 Application Fee (non-refundable)

The application fee may be submitted along with the online application (Miami's transfer application or the transfer Common Application) using a credit card or electronic funds transfer from a bank account or through the mail with a check or money order made payable to Miami University. If the application fee would cause financial hardship, please send a fee waiver request to Miami also grants fee waivers to students attending partner institutions, U.S. veterans and military personnel, and students participating in designated transfer events or programs. Applicants may select those options when filling out the application.

High School Transcript

Transcripts are required for applicants who have not completed 20 graded semester hours after graduating high school. Miami encourages high schools to submit documents electronically. We currently accept electronic transcripts via eSCRIP-SAFE, Docufide, or emailed to Faxed transcripts are not accepted. Applicants who have submitted their transfer application may see an outstanding requirement item of a high school transcript on their Applicant Status Page. This item will be waived upon receiving your college transcript and verifying that you meet the criteria above. For a complete list of required documents for home school applicants, please see Home School Curriculum. Once a student accepts their offer of admission, they will need to submit an official transcript. Official transcripts must be submitted by the high school. Please note the university also will complete eligibility checks through verification that may require a student to submit their official high school transcript, GED, or diploma. 

ACT/SAT Scores

Because of limited test availability during the COVID-19 pandemic, transfer students who are applying to begin at Miami between Spring 2022 and Spring 2024 are not required to provide an ACT or SAT test score for admission.

Institutional Academic Transcript

A transcript must be sent for each college/university you have attended since high school. Veterans and military personnel must submit documentation for alternative credit. Army, Coast Guard, Marine Corps, and Navy may send these transcripts electronically. Once a student accepts their offer of admission, they will need to submit an official transcript. Official transcripts must be sent directly from the college/university.

Midterm Report/Recommendation

For students in their first term of college, we encourage you to submit a mid-term report (PDF 110 KB) showing your current grades. If you have attended longer than one term, you may choose to supplement your application by having a college instructor submit a letter of recommendation on your behalf. The optional mid-term report and the letter of recommendation can be emailed to or faxed to 513-529-1550.
