Miami University-Hamilton was established in 1968 as a local branch of Miami University based in Oxford, Ohio. The school has approximately between 3,500 and 4,000 students enrolled either full- or part-time, with many students already having families and jobs of their own to tend to; in fact, the average age of the Miami University-Hamilton student body is 24.


Miami University-Hamilton offers a wide variety of associate degree programs as well as select bachelor’s degrees, in addition to several different continuing education courses and a limited set of master’s degrees in the fields of education and business. The university is divided into the following academic divisions: the School of Fine Arts, the College of Arts and Science, the School of Engineering, the Graduate School, the School of Education and Allied Professions, and the School of Business Administration.

The bachelor’s degrees at Miami University-Hamilton are in the following specific majors: Bachelor of Integrative Studies, Bachelor of Science in Nursing, and Bachelor of Science in Applied Science (specializing in Electro-Mechanical Engineering Technology or Mechanical Engineering Technology).

The university is well known for being the home of the Michael J. Colligan History Project, a lecture series complemented with more extensive programs that focuses on US history from diverse (and not always agreeing) points of view, the project being funded by the university and the local Hamilton Community Foundation.

Many students at the university end up transferring to the central campus in Oxford, Ohio after achieving a given amount of credits and maintaining a certain GPA to finish their study program. In addition, there are distance learning opportunities and hybrid programs offered by Miami University-Hamilton (involving mixed online and in-class formats).


Miami University-Hamilton applies an open-enrollment policy strictly for new students entering in the first year of a study program that do not have previous college experience (and, of course, who possess either a high school diploma or a GED). Other prospective student classifications, whether returning former student, transfer student, transient student, or unclassified, are subject to separate (and more rigorous) admissions criteria.

Miami University-Hamilton prospective students can apply online as well as by regular mail. Applications should normally be submitted during the semester previous to the semester in which studies would presumably begin. In addition to the application form and the application fee, students should have their SAT or ACT scores sent along as well, in addition to official transcripts of high school and/or college studies (students that have already been out of high school for a period greater than two years or who are not pursuing a degree program do not need to send their SAT or ACT scores).

Financial Aid

As a participating institution of the US federal government’s Title IV financial assistance programs, Miami University-Hamilton offers students a wide variety of potential financial aid resources to be taken advantage of. A broad gamut of grants, scholarships and loans as well as federal work-study opportunities are available. Scholarships are in their most part dependent on demonstrated academic achievement, where as most loans are contingent upon demonstrated financial need. Prospective students should submit their FAFSA application as early as possible to receive federally subsidized or partially-subsidized loans (which are doled out on a first-come, first-serve basis at the national level). Usually, the timeframe for submitting the FAFSA form for first year and transfer students falls in mid-February, whereas the priority date for returning students is in mid-March, as is the due date for most scholarship applications.
