Visiting Mills

Visit Mills CollegeThe best way to get to know Mills is by visiting the campus. From the moment you enter the front gate, you’ll find yourself welcomed by century-old trees that line Richards Road. Between the Mediterranean-style buildings and the California sun, you may find yourself falling in love with the campus, as so many of our students do.

Attend an Information Session
Attending an on-campus information session is a great opportunity to experience the Mills Public Policy Program’s dynamic learning community. You will have the chance to meet currently enrolled students, alumni, your potential fellow classmates, and members of our faculty and staff.

Schedule an Admission Consultation
An admission consultation is an informal meeting with a member of the Public Policy Program faculty or staff to discuss your personal academic and career objectives and determine whether Mills can help you reach these goals. If you would like, we can review your transcripts to determine if you’ve already met some of the master of public policy (MPP) foundation requirements. Previous course work completed at Mills or another institution may count toward your foundation requirements, reducing your number of classes and time needed to graduate. Admission consultations take place prior to applying to the MPP Program. To schedule a one-on-one meeting, email or call 510.430.2147.

Visit a Class
Try the Mills MPP Program on for size by sitting in on a class! Class visits can be scheduled during most of the academic year, and a current list of classes can be found here. Email or call 510.430.2147 to make arrangements for a class visit.

Meet with a Current MPP Student
Our current MPP students are always eager to speak with prospective students who are considering Mills. During a campus visit, you and a public policy graduate student can chat over coffee, tea, or the beverage of your choice at one of our charming Mills dining facilities. To schedule a meeting with a current MPP student, email or call 510.430.2147.
