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

We are committed to making your Miami experience affordable. Explore all the forms of financial support to find what’s best for you.


Based on merit and donor criteria, scholarship awards are made possible through the generous support of donors to Miami University.

Student Employment

Find work where you learn—on campus. Student employment is a great opportunity to provide income and work closely with faculty and staff.


Grants are financial aid awards that do not need to be repaid. Students must file a FAFSA in order to be considered for grants. Considering studying abroad? A grant could pay for your airfare.


Miami realizes that managing the cost of education is a challenge for most families. In addition to grants, scholarships, and federal work-study funds, several loan options are available.


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.
