How do I fill out the Miami University Graduate School Application Form?

Admissions Information:
Choose "Yes" that you are applying to a Graduate Degree Program.  Indicate that you plan to enroll in part-time study.

Have you previously attended Miami as a student?:
If you have taken any graduate class at Miami University (Earth Expeditions, Zoo Expeditions, and iDiscovery, are considered Miami graduate classes) check the YES box.

Taking a course for licensure or endorsement:
If you have selected the MAT as your degree program, please be aware that our MAT does NOT confer a teaching certification or a licensure. Neither does the MA.

Graduate admissions test:
No graduate admissions test scores are required for application to the GFP

Program Choice:
In the program choice section you may select either Biology (Master of Arts) or Biological Sciences (Master of Arts in Teaching).  Select Summer 2020 as your admission term.  Please note that you will NOT see "Global Field Program" or "Advanced Inquiry Program" listed here.

Additional Materials:
As part of your Graduate School application you will be required to upload the following (.doc, .docx, and .pdf are accepted file types):

- responses to two essay questions (limit of 250 words each):
1.  How have you translated professional opportunities, classes, or life experiences into your work?
2.  How do you think this experience will benefit your personal life, professional life, and your community?

- transcripts for each institution you have previously attended

- a copy of your résumé or CV

Please provide the names, institutions, and email addresses for a minimum of two references who have agreed to submit a letter of recommendation on your behalf in support of your Graduate School application.  The Graduate School application will allow you to list the name and e-mail address of a third reference, but only two letters of recommendation are required to complete your application package.

While applications are accepted through January 28 for the GFP and February 28 for the AIP, we encourage you to complete the Graduate School application portion of your Miami application by January 18 (GFP) or February 18 (AIP). Doing so will help ensure that our references have time to complete your letters of recommendation and that all materials will be received and processed in a timely manner.
