Tuition and Financial Aid

A Miami education is an investment that pays dividends for a lifetime. There are a number of options for financing, and we’re here to help you make sense of it all.

Miami’s Tuition Promise

We offer an extra layer of assurance to all first-time undergraduate students and their families. Renewable scholarships and financial aid dollars retain their value over the entire four-year period, and we freeze some major costs that make a major difference when you graduate.

Types of Aid

There are two types of aid available, Gift Aid and Self-Help. One or more types of aid may be included in your financial aid offer, depending on need and eligibility.

Gift Aid

Gift Aid includes grants, scholarships, remissions, awards, waivers, etc., and can be awarded based on many factors, including (but not limited to) financial need, academic excellence, athletic, musical, and/or theatrical talent.


Self-help is your contribution toward your education using a combination of loans, student employment such as Federal Work-Study, and/or savings.


To be considered for need-based financial aid and scholarships, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) must be submitted yearly. We’re here to help with next steps and important deadlines.
