Mills College was founded in 1852 to provide educational opportunities to women, defying the convention of the time. We’ve taken intentional and necessary steps to ensure that students have access to an inclusive and affordable education.
Reduced our undergraduate tuition by 36%
Beginning fall 2018, tuition will be lower by $16,000 for new and continuing undergraduate students. Students will still have the opportunity to receive merit scholarships and need-based financial aid.
Adopted a test-optional admissions policy
We do not require students to submit SAT or ACT scores with their application. Our admission process remains holistic and selective. We want students to share their unique story, accomplishments, and goals for the future with us.
Recognized as a Hispanic-Serving Institution (HSI)
Our Hispanic/Latina student body surpassed the 25 percent mark in 2016 qualifying Mills as an Hispanic-serving institution and reflecting the population of our California home.
Established a formal admission policy for transgender students
In 2014, we achieved international attention as the first women’s college to create a transgender admission policy and established our role at the forefront of expanding gender definitions and acceptance.
Our fall 2018 admission deadline is right around the corner on January 15th. If there are any students that would benefit from a Mills education, apply for free with this application fee waiver code: Counselors4Mills. This code does not expire. If students have any questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 510.430.2135.
