If I incur additional charges during the semester how can I pay for those charges?

If you incur additional charges during the semester, you have several payment options:

  • If you are already enrolled with our monthly payment plan, your balance will be adjusted automatically to match your new balance owed to Mills.

  • You may send a wire transfer to Mills College. Email the Finance Office at finance@mills.edu for wire transfer information.

I am not the student. How do I make a payment to my student's account?

Students can set up "authorized users" on their account page through the Mills Resource Portal. The authorized user will receive an email explaining how to set up a password. The authorized user can then visit Authorized User Log-In and make a payment.

I am not the student. How do I enroll in the payment plan?

Students can set up "authorized users" on their account page through the Mills Resource Portal. The authorized user will receive an email explaining how to set up a password. The authorized user can then visit Authorized User Log-In to enroll in the payment plan.

I am not the student. How do I reset my password?

The password that is sent by email is temporary and only valid for one-time use. If you previously set up your password, logged in to the website, and have forgotten your login information, click on the "Forgot Password" link on the login page to reset your password. You need to have entered an answer to a secret question to see the "Forgot Password" link. If the "Forgot Password" link does not appear on the login page, you must ask the student who authorized you to reset your password from his or her own account. For security reasons, neither Mills nor Higher One is permitted to reset Authorized User PINs, usernames or passwords.
