OXFORD, Ohio (WDTN) – Miami University is a record breaker.
The university says more students applied for enrollment for next school year than ever before.
24,801 students applied for the Fall 2014 semester.
The previous record was 22,520 applications for Fall 2013.
School administrators say Miami is seeing a steady growth in out of state, international and high ability applications.
“Miami has long been a choice for top students and we’re honored that this year even more high-achieving students are seeing us as a competitive option for their next four years,” says Michael Kabbaz, associate vice president for enrollment management. “We are proud to be a destination for student scholars who see the value in a liberal arts education and who view Miami as one of the best places in the nation to engage with faculty.”
Miami’s four year graduation rate is eighth among public universities nationwide. It is number one in Ohio.
