To apply to the ACE program, prospective students should apply via the regular Miami University application process for undergraduate international students. If you are admitted to the ACE program, you will follow regular confirmation and enrollment processes and procedures.

Program Availability

The ACE program is available for enrollment during the Fall and Spring semesters each year.

We offer two study options for completing conditional admission to Miami


The ACE program accepts students with strong academic credentials who have English language TOEFL scores in the 60-79 range (IBT), or IELTS 5.0-6.0, or ELS 109.

Conditional Admission

Students admitted into the ACE program are conditionally admitted to Miami University. This means that the students have all the privileges and rights of other Miami students. However, ACE students must complete the requirements of the ACE program in order to receive regular enrollment to the University.

To move from conditional admission to full admission:

  • ACE students must receive a B- or higher in each of the two required English language courses (ACE 112, ACE 113).
  • ACE students must pass the required American culture course (earn a C or higher).
