Credits are given as Mills course credits. For external students, one Mills credit will usually transfer to another college as 3.5 semester hours.

Auditors pay $750 per course. Mills alumnae pay $375 per course to audit (which includes general fees). Those who have a degree-in-progress at Mills and who are admitted for the Spring 2015 term are not eligible for the alumnae rate. Unless otherwise required by the instructor, auditors (including alumnae auditors) do not participate in class work or take examinations. Auditors do not receive credit and they may not subsequently request to receive credit by examination. Mills does not provide transcripts for auditors.

Housing: Limited on-campus housing is available in Ege C-Wing at the rate of $445 for a single room, $395 for a double room (two occupants, per person), or $550 for a super single room (double room with only one occupant, if available). A 19-meal-per-week plan is required, at the additional cost of $405. If you need housing, please consult Living at Mills and contact the Housing Office housing@mills.edu as soon as possible. If the class in which you are enrolled is canceled your January Term housing agreement will be canceled as well; in this event you will be given a full refund of your J-Term housing and meal plan charges. The deadline to apply for J-Term housing is Friday, November 14, 2014.

Payment for courses: After you are enrolled, you will be billed for the course.
