Required Application Materials

As a guidance counselor, you may need to provide the following materials for high school applicants. (Miami does not require the Common Application Mid-Year Report.)

  1. Recommendation
    Miami requires one recommendation from either a guidance counselor or a teacher in an academic subject. This recommendation can be in the form of a letter; the Common Application School Report (preferred), completed by your counselor; or the Common Application Teacher Evaluation, completed by an academic teacher. Either form can be submitted online at The recommendation must be submitted directly from the school official.
  2. Official High School Transcript or Self-Reported Courses and Grades

    When students apply, they can either submit a high school transcript or a Self-Reported Academic Record (SRAR). The SRAR is required for direct admission to the Farmer School of Business, nursing, and honors programs, but it is optional for all other programs. Students gain access to the SRAR on the day after they submit their Common App, through their Miami Applicant Status Page. See SRAR FAQs for more information. 

    Accepted students who confirm their enrollment must provide an official, final transcript with proof of high school graduation (graduation date included) by August 1 of their enrolling year. Our preference is for final transcripts to be submitted through Common Application, eSCRIP-SAFE, or Parchment. Faxed transcripts are not accepted. 

Materials can also be mailed to the following address:
