Admission to UOnline

What makes a successful application?

When you apply to study online with the University of Miami, you are required to provide transcripts from the academic institutions you have attended, graduate exam results,* a recent resume, a personal statement and letters of recommendation. These documents help us understand your career goals, academic and professional background and make an informed admissions decision to ensure the program is right for you.

We are interested in the overall quality of your application, rather than individual components. You need to complete all the elements of the application and submit all the required documentation before you can be considered for admission.

*GRE and GMAT waivers are available for qualified applicants.
