Application information

Find out about requirements, fees, and deadlines


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 community. Also required are your high school transcripts, two letters of recommendation, and additional documents your guidance counselor will provide. 

For Fall 2021, the University of Miami is piloting test-optional admission. Those who choose not to submit test scores will not be at a disadvantage.


Transfer applicants are encouraged to apply by the April 1 priority deadline for entry in the fall semester or the November 1 priority deadline to begin in the spring. As with first-year applicants, transfer students submit the Common Application, as well as their college transcripts and a College Report from every postsecondary institution attended.

Transfer coursework is evaluated for credit after admission. Learn more about course credit equivalencies at

Additional Information

All applicants are automatically considered for our merit scholarships; no additional application is required. To be eligible for Premier Scholarships, which cover up to the full cost of attendance, students must apply by the November 1 deadline, either under the Early Decision I or Early Action admission plans. Recipients are notified at the time of admission of any scholarship and/or aid awarded.
We are committed to increasing access to a top-tier education. Beginning in Fall 2021, the University will meet 100 percent of demonstrated financial need for admitted first-year students, as determined by financial information provided in their FAFSA and CSS Profile.
