COVID-19 vaccinated Miami University students eligible to win 80+ prizes

Miami University is encouraging students to get their COVID-19 vaccinations by offering more than 80 prizes.

“We are so excited to welcome our 20,000-plus students back to our nationally recognized Miami Experience this fall. We are planning for an exciting, robust, and immersive semester,” Miami President Gregory Crawford said.
“Because vaccination remains our most effective and important tool to fight the spread of COVID-19, we want students to get vaccinated and report that they received their vaccinations,” the president said.

The Oxford and Regional Campuses will each run a vaccine incentive program. All full-time students are eligible to participate if they meet all of the following requirements:

  • They are registered as a full-time student in the fall semester (12+ credit hours undergraduate, 9+ credit hours graduate).
  • They have received at least a first dose of a two-dose vaccine or have completed a single-dose vaccine.
  • They upload proof of their vaccination into Miami’s online medical portal.

Prizes include: bursar credit equal to one Tuition Promise semester of in-state tuition and fees (maximum value $8,352), bursar credit for a Miami meal plan for one year (maximum value $3,000), VIP box tickets for the student and nine friends to a Miami hockey game, cash prizes, laptops, and bookstore gift cards.

No taxpayer or tuition dollars are being used to fund the prizes.
