Students planning to study in a foreign language must have completed two years of college-level courses in the applicable language, or the equivalent.
Costs for travel are usually not included in a program's fees, and are the responsibility of the participating student.
Financial Aid for International Visit and Domestic Visit Programs
For students participating in a Mills-affiliated international visit (study abroad) or domestic visit program, federal and state sources of financial aid will transfer to assist with program costs. The amount of a student's federal and/or state aid available for this purpose will be determined by the M Center; federal and/or state sources of financial aid will be adjusted according to the costs of the program in keeping with federal and state regulations. Institutional scholarships, i.e. merit-based and need-based Mills scholarships, cannot be transferred toward the cost of a domestic visit or international visit (study abroad) program. Costs for travel usually are not included in published program fees and are the responsibility of the participating student. Please note that students are ALWAYS responsible for the initial deposit required by all international study programs. Mills will not pay this fee, nor reimburse students for it.
Note: A limited amount of scholarship support is available for students planning to study abroad in the Spring 2014 semester. This support is made possible through a donation from a generous Mills alumna. Up to four students will be selected to receive a scholarship ranging from $1,000 to $3,000 for use in meeting the tuition expenses of a Mills-affiliated international visit (study abroad) program. Students will be selected on the basis of financial need. There is no separate application for these scholarships. To be considered, a student must have filed a FAFSA for the 2013-14 academic year and have submitted a complete application to study abroad by October 15th. Additional information regarding these scholarships is available in the M Center.
