Your acceptance to our offer of admissions to the University of Miami School of Law must be confirmed with a seat deposit of $1,000, which will be applied towards your first semester's tuition. In most cases, this deposit may be made in two $500 payments according to the deadlines found in your acceptance letter. In some cases, the entire $1,000 seat deposit will be due at once (if applicable, this would be outlined in your acceptance letter):
Please note that the first $500 portion of your $1,000 seat deposit is non-refundable.
1st $500 deposit / check acceptance letter for deposit due date / non-refundable
2nd $500 deposit / check acceptance letter for deposit due date / partially refundable
Partial refund of your second $500 seat deposit is based upon the following schedule:
Notification in writing prior to July 1
From July 1 to July 15
From July 16 to August 2
After August 2
$0 (no refund)
On-line payments by credit card or e-checks must be made through the University Portal, myUM.
You may also submit your seat deposits by check (made payable to the University of Miami).
If your seat deposit check is received in the office after your deadline, it will be accepted on a space available basis only if it was postmarked at least seven days prior to your due date (when using regular or express US mail) or three days prior to your due date (when using UPS, FedEx or other courier).
We will not accept deposits which do not meet these requirements. It is this school's policy to cancel the acceptance of an applicant who does not make the tuition deposit payment by the designated dates.
Partial-Tuition Scholarship Recipients who both accept their awards and submit their first non-refundable $500 deposits by 5:00 p.m. on April 1, 2013 will receive a $2,000 increase in their awards. These additional funds increase the total value of these individual scholarship awards by $6,000 over the course of three years. Details regarding this option have been forwarded to Scholarship recipients. Recipients who submit their first seat deposit after April 1st will not be eligible for the increase.
