In little more than 75 years, the University of Miami has risen to become one of the great academic research institutions in the world. In the last 10 years alone, applications to UM have more than doubled. Our success is due in great part to our 135,000+ alumni whose accomplishments in the "real world" speak volumes for the value of a UM degree.
It's vital to us that we continue this tradition of success and accomplishment. As we are increasingly more selective, it is important that we pay special attention to our relationship with alumni and take excruciating care in evaluating legacy applications. Legacy applications are encouraged and each is given very special consideration by our admission staff in the evaluation process.
For admission purposes, the University of Miami defines a "legacy" as the child or grandchild of a UM alumnus/a.
