Miami University Regionals Scholarship Opportunities

Both need-based scholarships and merit scholarships are available for first-year, transfer, and continuing students. Scholarship deadlines may vary, so please review all important dates carefully.

Financial Aid

Access key ways to help finance your education by submitting your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This will open the door to all need-based scholarships, grants, work-study, and federal loans.


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

Educational Loans

Educational student and parent loans are a type of financial aid that must be repaid, typically with interest. Student and parent loans have varying fees, interest rates, repayment terms, and/or borrower protections.

Funding Options

Payment Plans

Miami University offers tuition payment plans that allow families to budget each semester’s bill over a period of two or four months. Families incur a nominal enrollment fee, but no interest charges. Enrollment in payment plans does not require a credit check.


Work-Study is a need-based federal financial aid program that allows you to work between college classes for 10–20 hours a week on campus. Work-Study earnings are not credited to your Bursar account. Instead, you will receive a biweekly paycheck. You must indicate your interest in a Work-Study on your FAFSA.
