We know our students are dedicated to taking the next step in their careers, and we are here to help. We're proud to offer a tuition waiver to every accepted UOnline student. That's right – if you qualify for the degree, you qualify for the waiver. It's that simple.

We also offer financial assistance to University of Miami alumni and employees, as well as active-duty military members and veterans. If you live in the U.S., you may be eligible for a federal loan. It is recommended that you complete your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as soon as possible. The application process takes about 30 minutes to complete.

In addition to an academic advisor assigned to you throughout your years at UOnline, you will be assigned an enrollment advisor to help you apply and even answer questions after you are admitted.

4. Connect with our Alumni Network
Universities with online master's degree programs have alumni networks as robust as in-person programs. The University of Miami’s alumni network is over 160,000 strong; that’s a mighty Hurricane force!

Classmates with diverse backgrounds create a multifaceted learning experience that transcends the student experience. They become your future fellow alumni. They could even become your future colleagues or function as that foot in the door you need upon graduation.

5. Use Career Services to Your Advantage
Get ready to open your mind to career possibilities you haven’t considered before. Online resources through the Toppel Career Center include networking opportunities and access to career fairs, which could lead to post-grad jobs.

Online master’s degrees lead to rewarding future careers, whether those careers are virtual, in-person, or hybrid. And, of course, if you want to rise in the ranks at your current workplace, you can complete your UOnline degree alongside a full-time job.
