Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

4.19 Average Rating
Miami isn't cheap, but it's also not one of the most expensive schools on the market. It's a public institution. And considering how prestigious Miami is - arguably the best public university in the state of Ohio - the experience is well worth the expense. Home sporting events are free to Miami students, which is invaluable by itself during hockey season; free or inexpensive events are held frequently, including concerts, lectures, and events held by the Residence Hall Association; and, although some of the dining options can get pricey, they are covered by your meal plan. Also, any credit that's left on the meal plan at the end of the year (as long as you're not a senior) is put onto your MUlaa account, which can be put toward text books, laundry, or other on-campus expenses.
Andrew from Lima, OH
As with any school, it's what you make of it. There are so many cool people around -- all it takes it stepping out of your room and talking to them. The academics are great and the campus is beautiful. The Miami slogan of "To think that in such a place, I led such a life" rings true to just about every senior too depressed to leave Oxford.
Jeremy from Toledo, OH
It's worth it. What matters at miami is YOUR education. Why do you go to school? To learn. (Or that's why you're suppose to attend institutions of higher learning.) Students are offered a great range of classes per semester, and many valuable resources. I probably cannot count how many advisors I have on one hand! (And the food is fantastic.)
Hannah from N Canton, OH
Miami has so many facilities such as its ice skating rink, pool, and its gym. Students also get free admission to events in those facilities, not to mention the delicious dishes prepared for students right here on campus. There are so many things offered that the tuition of the university is often shocking. When all those facilities are factored into the tuition it is often wondered how the price could be so low. It is most definitely a bang for the buck.
Jennifer from Cincinnati, OH
con: miami is one of the most expensive public schools you'll come across, especially for out of state students

pro: miami gives out a ton of merit-based scholarships. in fact, many people at miami (including myself) are on full academic scholarship. the whole reason i chose this school was because it was the cheapest place for me to go out of all the schools to which i applied.

con: even with scholarships, miami has a lot of annoying fees including student center fees, course fees, dining fees, and expensive housing.

Prices at Miami seem fairly reasonable in terms of tuition. The bookstores' merchandise is overpriced. Shows and performances are at no cost or at a low price. Sports' events are free to students. On-campus restaurants are pricey but can be paid for with meal plan.
Samantha from Erlanger, KY
As an out-of-state student, the tuition was a little steeper than I would have liked, but it is not ridiculously expensive. In-state tuition is more affordable. As far as financial aid is concerned, I would classify Miami as middle of the pack.
Demitrios from Chicago, IL
Miami certainly has a big bang for the buck. Some may complain about a higher tuition, but you really are getting what you pay for. Being apart of the business portion of Miami, I am given the opportunity to be looked at first for career recruitment due to Miami's high reputation. Like some people say, Miami is the Ivy league public school. You are required to take classes with all back grounds in order to make you a well rounded, knowledgeable citizen. Also, your money is going towards great living conditions, and the food is great. On top of that, the amount of extracurricular activities really provides even more bang for Miami. Miami really does have a big bang for the buck.
Mike from Cincinnati, OH
Its an in state and public school. You can sleep easy knowing that your taxpayer money is partially funding your experience at Miami.
