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

3.86 Average Rating
Well, this is the one thing that I don't like about UM -- tuition costs. For paying about $54,000 a year, one would assume that they are getting a royal treatment. Sure, the diversity is great, the campus is located in the prime of South Miami, and the classes are great, but the tuition is expensive.
Bijal from Pembroke Pines, FL
The school is very generous with merit scholarships compared to other universities in the top 50. Although the cost of attendance is expensive, the financial aid definitely makes it a great value for top 50 university.
Sal from Metairie, LA
Although the tuition may seem a bit pricey, it's 100% worth it. The variety of classes, the experience of professors, and the overall life at UMiami make students feel comfortable. The school really prepares students for the real world during and after college, and assists in as many ways as possible to help them transition.
Kelly from Coral Gables, FL
UM is a private school so it can get expensive. So I can understand if some people are turned off by the price but I have a pretty good financial aid package and they try to help you out financially.
Jude from Miami, FL
Although the University of Miami is an expensive private school, they provide many scholarships, work study and financial aid opportunities, and the quality of education there is definitely worth the expense.
Brittany from Miami, FL
Yes, UM is a private school and it can get very expensive at times, but I believe it is worth every penny. You definitely get what you pay for at this University. The financial packages at this school are also one of a kind, they are always trying to help!
Mashail from Boynton Beach, FL
It cost a pretty penny but its worth it. Cappex will help u find scholarships so no need to fear!
Jazzmyne @ UM
I understand that UM is a very expensive private school, and I know I wouldn't have been able to come here without a good amount of scholarship. But that is exactly what I have, and, as a matter of fact, more than 75% of the people that I know here are on great scholarship. As for the school's worthiness of its price tag, I would say that it lives up to one's every hope and expectation. and that UM will help you succeed in whatever you want. That's all that one can ask for.
Rachel from Coral Gables, FL
the sticker price is quite high, but there are plentiful opportunities to mitigate that. scholarships for freshmen and transfers have the potential to cover anywhere from 25-100% of the expenses.
once you graduate, you will find that the local area loves um graduates. former hurricanes hold leadership positions around the city and will gladly hire um grads.
