Required Materials

All applicants to the Post-baccalaureate Pre-Med Certificate Program at Mills College are required to submit the following:

Graduate Application for Admission: Applications can be completed online or hard-copy. Complete all sections of the application as indicated, including:

Statement of Purpose. Please follow the essay guidelines provided on the main application form.

Supplemental Application: Pre-med students are required to submit a supplemental application for admission, which details program-specific admission requirements. The supplemental application should be submitted along with the online application.

Application Fee of $50: Credit cards and electronic checks are accepted for online application submission. The application fee is also payable to Mills College by check or money order, drawn on a US bank. Cash is accepted if paid in person to the Office of Graduate Admission.

Standardized Test Scores: Please submit official SAT, ACT, or GRE scores to the Mills College Office of Graduate Admission. You do not need to specify a department. Mills College's ETS code is 004485.

Two Official Transcripts: Two official transcripts with grades from each post-secondary institution attended toward receipt of bachelor's degree should be sent directly by each institution to the Office of Graduate Admission. In general, accepted students have achieved a B+ (3.2 GPA) average or better at the college level.

If you obtained your bachelor’s degree outside the US, you are required to have your transcript evaluated by a NACES member organization. If the transcript is written in a language other than English, it must be accompanied by a certified English translation.

Please Note:
Admission to graduate or post-baccalaureate study at Mills College is contingent upon the successful completion of a bachelor's degree from an accredited college or university. If you are still completing your degree at the time of application, send official transcripts showing work completed and in progress. Immediately upon completion of the baccalaureate degree requirements, it is your responsibility to send a final transcript with the degree posted to our office.

Three Academic Letters of Recommendation: Recommendation forms can be sent as part of the online application or sent directly by the recommender to the Office of Graduate Admission via postal mail or email.
Note: Current Mills College students and alumnae are only required to submit one letter of recommendation.

Proof of English Language Proficiency: A TOEFL or IELTS is required for all non-native speakers of English, unless you hold the equivalent of a US bachelor’s degree from an English speaking, regionally accredited, university or college located in the US, Canada, Australia, or Great Britain. The minimum TOEFL score on the internet-based test is 80 and the minimum IELTS band score is 6.0.

Certification of Finances and Bank Statement: Prior to enrollment, applicants who require a visa for studying at Mills are required to submit a Certification of Finances form and bank statement. These documents do not need to be submitted with the application materials. An I-20 cannot be issued without these documents.
