A very strong, academically accomplished group of students make up the accepted student pool for Miami University's class of 2015. Miami received 18,428 first-year applications for the fall 2011-2012 academic year.
Of those students accepted for fall 2011 admission to Miami, 40 percent ranked in the top 10 percent of their high school classes. The middle 50 percent ranked between the top 6-25 percent of their high school classes. Valedictorians and salutatorians account for 7.1 percent of Miami’s admitted students.
Students accepted for admission to Miami also scored well on standardized test scores: 26 percent scored 30 or above in the ACT; the middle 50 percent scored between 25-30. On the SAT, 26.5 percent scored 1,300 and above; the middle 50 percent scored between 1,140-1,300.
Students represent Ohio, 47 other states and 43 other countries. In addition, 54.5 percent of the accepted students are female; 45.5 percent are male; 13 percent are multicultural.
Members of the class of 2015 will begin their Miami University experience in June with summer orientation activities. Currently, 3,721 students have confirmed their intent to attend Miami, and while the numbers may change slightly over the summer, academic quality (test scores and GPA) and the percent of non-residents are currently showing increases over last year.
