Transferring from Other Colleges
Priority admission and scholarship consideration is given to applicants who submit required materials by the March 1 Regular Decision deadline for fall entry and November 1 for spring entry. For financial aid purposes, California residents applying for a Cal Grant must file the FAFSA and GPA Verification form by the March 2 deadline. Applications received after the regular decision deadlines will be considered on a rolling basis. Financial aid and scholarships may still be available. Please call the Office of Undergraduate Admission for additional information.
In addition to the Application for Undergraduate Admission, the following are required:
Up to two years of a normal course load at an accredited community or four-year college is acceptable for transfer and usually will result in junior standing if all work is in the liberal arts curriculum. Not all course work taken at other colleges may be counted toward fulfillment of the Mills major or degree requirements; this will be determined by the M Center in consultation with relevant Mills academic departments. A preliminary evaluation of transferable credit is provided upon admission.
Students considering Mills are always welcome to visit the campus. Arrangements for a tour and information session, or class visits, and, if desired, an overnight accommodation in a residence hall, can be made by contacting the Office of Undergraduate Admission. Overnight visits are arranged Monday through Thursday when classes are in session. In addition, special visit programs are held throughout the academic year. Contact the Office of Undergraduate Admission for more information.
The Office of Admission is open Monday-Friday from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm; phone hours are 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. Interviews are offered between 9:00 am and 3:30 pm, Monday through Friday.

Mills College Undergraduate Admissions' Policy for Transgendered or Gender Questioning Applicants
Mills does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, marital status, age, religious creed, national origin, ancestry, sexual orientation, or disability (in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, 1973 Rehabilitation Act Section 504, and implementing regulations) in its admission policies, scholarship and loan programs, or in the educational programs, co-curricular activities and residential facilities which it operates. Mills' admission policies are informed by Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, which allows for single-sex admissions policies in institutions of higher education that have historically served women. Mills admits self-identified women and people assigned female at birth who do not fit into the gender binary at the undergraduate level; and all genders at the graduate level. Within these parameters, Mills does not discriminate on the basis of gender identity and expression in its admission policies, scholarship and loan programs, or in the educational programs, co-curricular activities and residential facilities which it operates.
Mills College admits students of all genders to its graduate programs, and "self-identified" women to its undergraduate programs. Mills shall not discriminate against applicants whose gender identity does not match their legally assigned sex. Students who self-identify as female are eligible to apply for undergraduate admission. This includes students who were not assigned to the female sex at birth but live and identify as women at the time of application. It also includes students who are legally assigned to the female sex, but who identify as transgender or gender fluid. Students assigned to the female sex at birth who have undergone a legal change of gender to male prior to the point of application are not eligible for admission.
Where there is a conflict between the student's self-identified gender and the gender that appears on legal documentation such as an academic transcript or documents provided as part of the financial aid process, the student is strongly encouraged to contact the Office of Undergraduate Admissions for a discussion around their desire to attend a women's college and how they self-identify in terms of gender. This self-identification shall be the driving force behind the College's eligibility decision.
Once admitted, any student who completes the College's graduation requirements shall be awarded a degree.
