International Students

For 2021-2022, The University of Miami is need-aware for first-year and transfer international undergraduate degree-seeking applicants.  This means that, for a portion of international applicants, the Admission Committee will consider that student’s ability to pay tuition without the need for financial aid. UM is committed to meeting the full demonstrated financial need of all admitted first-year degree-seeking undergraduate international students. 

All prospective first-year and transfer international students who apply for admission to UM and are interested in being considered for financial aid must complete the following by our stated deadlines.
