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 2018, 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 1280-1400. In addition, the middle 50% held a GPA of 3.64-4.15 (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.

Schedule a Visit

Prospective high school students can schedule an appointment to visit the Farmer School of Business to meet with an academic advisor in a small group setting and tour the building. From May 21 - August 24, visits are held at 11:00 am Monday through Friday and last approximately 50 minutes. For guests who plan to attend the Office of Admission campus tour, we recommend registering for the 1 pm campus tour to allow adequate time for both visits. There will be no prospective student visit August 27-31. 

To schedule a visit, please use the online Farmer School of Business Prospective Student Visit Request System.  Please schedule at least 5 business days in advance of when you would like to visit to allow adequate time for your request to be processed.

Note: While we will do our best to accommodate your first visit date preference, please provide us with three options that work in your schedule. If you encounter any issues while trying to register please contact FSB Student Services at 513-529-1712.
