The University of Miami will remain test optional for all students applying for 
Spring and Fall 2023.

This means that when applying via the Common Application, prospective students may choose whether or not to self-report their test scores. If they choose to self-report their test scores on the Common Application, they may designate whether or not they wish to have those test scores used in the selection process. Applicants will not be required to self-report test scores on the Common Application.

Spring and Fall 2023 Supplemental Essay Prompt

In addition, all Spring and Fall 2023 first-year applicants will be required to submit a 250 word supplemental essay that focuses on resilience with the Common Application.

Only those Spring and Fall 2023 transfer applicants with fewer than 30 postsecondary credits at the time of their application who do not submit ACT or SAT scores will be required to submit the supplemental essay.

The University of Miami's official mascot is the ibis. Folklore maintains that the native marsh bird is the last to take shelter before a hurricane hits and the first to emerge once the storm passes, making it an apt symbol of courage and resilience.

Considering your ability to control your own motivation and behavior, how have past experiences helped build your courage and resilience to persist in the face of academic and life challenges so that, once these storms pass, you can emerge in continued pursuit of your goals?
