Domestic Study Opportunities
Exchange Affiliates | Visiting Affiliates | Eligibility
Academic Credit | Fees/Billing/Financial Aid | Application Process
Mills students may participate in domestic exchange or visiting programs at the following colleges and universities:
Students who choose an exchange affiliate continue to pay all fees to Mills while those coming to Mills from an exchange affiliate will pay their fees to their home institution. Mills monitors the total number of our exchange students with those from all our exchange affiliates attending Mills each semester to achieve balance.
Students who choose to participate in a visiting program pay Mills initially and Mills then forwards payments to the institution the student has chosen to visit.
Juniors who have completed at least one semester at Mills College and have a minimum 3.0 Mills cumulative grade point average at the time of application are eligible to participate in the program.
Mills accepts credits earned by a student while on an exchange/visiting program in accordance with current transfer policies.
Mills students on exchange must pay Mills College full tuition and fees, including room and board, while on exchange. If the applicant is receiving financial aid, the award is applicable to these fees. Students will be billed by Mills College, as usual, while on exchange.
Visiting participants will be billed by Mills College for the cost of the visiting institution's program fees. A student's financial aid award is applicable to these fees. After payment is submitted to Mills, the College will forward payment to the visiting program.
The cost of travel to and from the exchange/visiting institution is the responsibility of the participating student.
