A Miami University education is an investment that pays dividends for a lifetime. There are a number of financing options, and the One Stop is here to help you choose the right one for you and your family. Educating yourself about financial aid and funding opportunities are key to securing financial wellness.
Because of this year’s delays in 2024-2025 FAFSA availability, Miami University extended its priority deadline for submission to Friday, March 1, 2024.
Be advised that application processing times are currently delayed for the 2024-2025 FAFSA form. While the Department of Education estimates that colleges may not receive applications until late March, further delays are possible. Any 2024-2025 FAFSA applications submitted by March 1, 2024 will be considered on time for Miami University’s priority FAFSA deadline. On-time filing of the application is based on submission date, not processing date.
Apply for Financial Aid
To apply for state/federal financial aid, including grants, scholarships, loans, and federal work-study funds, all eligible students should complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) annually by Miami’s priority deadline using Miami’s Federal School Code of 003077.
Parents of dependent students and graduate students can apply for Federal Direct PLUS Loans at StudentAid.gov. After completing the application, a Master Promissory Note must also be completed at StudentAid.gov.

Miami’s Tuition Promise guarantees that tuition (instructional fee and general fee), housing and food, special purpose fees, and course fees will be frozen for all first-time undergraduate students and their families. This will make them completely predictable for four years. Below, you can review the costs associated with your education:

Cost of Attendance (COA) is the estimated total cost of attending Miami for one academic year. It is used when determining your financial aid eligibility. The COA is calculated based on estimated direct paid to Miami and indirect costs not paid to Miami. The COA for each incoming class is finalized by the Board of Trustees in June. For this reason, your financial aid offer will be an estimate if you are admitted to Miami.
