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.

The deadline to apply for J-Term housing is Friday, November 15, 2013.

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