Miami University – Top Stories
The story of Miami’s incoming Class of 2019 already begins with a number of successes: It’s the most academically accomplished and most domestically diverse in the university’s 206-year history.
Of the more than 3,880 students enrolled, 51 percent are female. Fifty-five percent of the incoming class is from Ohio, and 13.5 percent represent domestic diversity.
This class also represents the highest interest and enrollment from students throughout the country and the globe — 36 percent are from other states and 8.4 percent are international, with 71.5 percent of those from China.
“The story surrounding the Class of 2019 is simply amazing. The year began with a record number of applications for admission,” said Susan Schaurer, assistant vice president of enrollment management and director of admission. “Our ability to attract and enroll the brightest and best from the state of Ohio, across the U.S. and around the globe illustrates the demand for a Miami degree is at an all-time high and is indicative of its recognition as a Public Ivy whose alumni are consistently recruited by the nation’s top employers and graduate and professional school programs.”
About 35 percent of incoming students graduated in the top 10 percent of their classes. In addition, 58 percent are entering Miami with college credits through advanced placement, the Post-Secondary Enrollment Option and other programs. The average ACT score is 28, with 33 percent scoring a 30 or higher.
The incoming students expressed interest in 101 different majors, with 30 percent of the class interested in majors within the College of Arts and Science and 24 percent in the Farmer School of Business.
