An enrollment deposit of $300 is required of all entering students by the date stated in the letter of admission. The fee will be applied toward the first payment of tuition and fees, and is nonrefundable.
The student’s final secondary school or college transcript must be submitted to the Office of Undergraduate Admission. Transcripts of summer session work should be forwarded to the M Center as soon as they are available. Students who are studying abroad must submit official results of all final and leaving examinations. Students should request that these documents be sent to Mills prior to leaving their country of study. These results must be received before a student will be allowed to enroll or before financial aid funds will be disbursed. All offers of admission are contingent upon maintenance of the standard of performance on which admission was based. Final official transcripts must be received by July 1 (earlier if possible) for students enrolling in the fall and by January 10 for students enrolling in the spring. Students may not be allowed to enroll if their final documents are not on file at Mills.
An admitted student may request, in writing, to delay entrance for up to one year provided she does not take any courses elsewhere. A $600 nonrefundable enrollment deposit is required to hold a place in the class. If a student defers, financial aid and/or merit scholarships are not guaranteed in subsequent semesters of entry. The student must inform the Office of Undergraduate Admission of her intent to enroll at least three months before the semester of entrance.
Room and Board Agreement
Students who will live in campus housing are also required to submit a security/reservation deposit to the College in May for priority housing for fall admission and December 21 for spring admission.
