Undergraduate Admission & Financial Aid
Miami University’s Regional Campuses have an open admission policy and different types of admission depending on students' post-secondary educational experience.
Students who begin attending Miami by taking courses at the Voice of America Learning Center are admitted as regional campus students through either Miami’s Hamilton or Middletown campuses.
For admission to the fall semester all admission applications must be received by August 1, and for admission to the spring semester by December 1.
The information below provides general descriptions of the types of admission, and links to pages with more specific information and admission forms for the Middletown and Hamilton campuses.
First Time College Students
Students who have never taken college courses at another accredited university and plan to seek a Miami degree.
Returning/Re-Enrolling Former Miami Students
Students who have attended any of Miami University’s campuses and completed a course for a final grade are considered returning former students, regardless of the length of time they have been away from the University.
Students who have attended another accredited college or university after high school and have earned credit.
Students currently enrolled in another institution, or who have attended another college/university within the last 12 months, who wish to take courses at the Learning Center. Transient status is good for one semester at a time and students may not attend for two consecutive semesters.
Post-Secondary Education Opportunity (PSEO)
The Post-Secondary Enrollment Options Program (PSEOP) has been established to permit high school students in grades 9 through 12 to earn college and high school graduation credit through the successful completion of college courses.
