Non-Ohio Residents

Non-Ohio residents enrolled as E-Campus program students receive a special reduced rate of $350 per credit hour (inclusive of the E-Learning fee) for online undergraduate programs.  Students must remain enrolled in an E-Campus major to be eligible for the special tuition rate.

Winter and Summer Terms

All instate students receive a 20% discount for online classes in winter and summer terms

E-Campus Fee

Online students are able to get the same quality experience at an affordable price. The Miami University Board of Trustees approved a fee of $35.00 per credit hour for all online and hybrid courses. The fee began with the Fall 2011 semester. Maintaining the currency and quality of our e-learning courses requires technical expertise and support beyond that typically needed in face-to-face courses. The money from the fee goes toward expanding and enhancing our e-learning offerings.

Types of Aid

Financial Aid refers to any number of ways to help finance your education. It can include scholarships, grants, and loans.

Miami awards merit and need-based scholarships, and even more scholarships are available from outside sources. Some of our scholarships are competitive, others are awarded to students who meet minimum income or academic eligibility requirements.


Need-based financial aid and scholarships are available through completion of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. Students must complete a FAFSA each year to be considered for all need-based scholarship, grants, and federal loans. Miami University's Federal School Code 003077.
