How to Apply

First-year students who meet eligibility requirements are invited to join and enroll in the Miami LSAMP Program and participate in the LSAMP Early Arrival Program (EAP) through their Miami email addresses during the summer before they enter Miami University.

Sophomores through seniors are invited to enroll in LSAMP when there are open seats in the program.
