About Costs

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.
