As a regional, commuter campus for its larger, sister school in Oxford, Ohio, Miami University – Middletown, also known as MUM, allows its students to easily receive a Miami University education while not having to move too far away from home. Since it is smaller, the school possesses a small student body and thus, focuses on great student to faculty ratios, with about 16 students per class. Additionally, the school caters to a wide diversity of students, both on a multicultural and age level, with an average age of 24 and a maximum of 79.
The school offers a slew of associate degrees and certificate programs to enhance individual’s skills within the business and professional world, while also allowing students to achieve bachelor’s degrees in integrative studies, nursing and engineering technologies. Actually, many of the students at Miami University – Middletown start the first one or two years of their bachelor’s degree at the school before transferring over to a four-year university.
Since almost half of the student body has part-time or full-time jobs, the school provides the opportunity for individuals to earn an associate’s degree by going to school on the weekends instead of during the week with their SaturdaySelect program.
Moreover, the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools, which operates under the Higher Learning Commission, has accredited Miami University – Middletown and all of its academic courses.
