Eliminating the financial barriers to a world-class education

For the first time ever, the University of Miami is meeting 100 percent of demonstrated financial need for all federal aid-eligible Florida residents. Thanks to amplified financial aid packages, including low-interest loans, UM is removing the financial barriers and increasing access to a top tier education, right in your home state. 

We believe every student should have the chance to reach their full potential by attending UM, a private, top research university.

So how does it work? We’ll calculate your estimated family contribution based on your FAFSA and CSS Profile and subtract it from the full annual cost of attendance, which includes tuition and other expenses like room and board. If admitted, we’ll make up the difference.

Are you eligible?

Applicants who are eligible for federal aid and meet the following criteria will automatically have their need-based aid package calculated upon admission:

  1. U.S. Citizens and Permanent Residents living in Florida 
  2. First-year students applying to UM for Fall 2020 or later
  3. Applicants who’ve completed and submitted their FAFSA and CSS Profile by the deadline

Explore financial aid

The University of Miami has numerous financial aid opportunities to make your prestigious education affordable. If you’ve got passion, we have a path to transform your aspirations and interests into a rewarding career. Depending on your financial situation, you may be eligible for grants, low-interest student loans, work-study programs, scholarships, or a combination of all four. Remember all applicants are considered for merit-based scholarships, regardless of financial need.
