First-year

University of Miami employs a holistic review process. First-year applicants must submit the Common Application, which includes a personal statement, supplemental essay, and a section for detailing extracurricular activities. These portions of the application are a chance to show us who you are, what you have devoted your time to during high school, and what you will add to our dynamic campus community. Applicants must also submit a School Report form, high school transcript, and one letter of recommendation. There may be additional requirements for special programs, such as Architecture, Music, Theatre Arts B.F.A., and Health Professions Mentoring (HPM).

If you completed secondary school and/or attended University outside of the United States, applicants are required to submit a Financial Certification Form. Non-native English speakers are required to submit the TOEFL or IELTS unless they meet one of our waivers. admissions.miami.edu/i-eval

For 2023, the University of Miami is test optional. Applicants who choose not to submit test scores will not be at a disadvantage for admission or merit-based scholarships.

Transfer

Transfer applicants should apply by the April 1 priority deadline for entry in the fall semester or the November 1 priority deadline for entry in the spring. Applications and/or supporting documents received after the stated priority deadlines will be reviewed on a space available basis. Students submit the Common Application, as well as their college transcripts and a College Report from every U.S. postsecondary institution attended. There may be additional requirements for special programs, such as Architecture, Music, Theatre Arts B.F.A., and Health Professions Mentoring (HPM).
