We are looking forward to welcoming new students to campus for Orientation 2021! We have updated our COVID-19 health and safety guidelines so we can plan for an in-person academic experience with some online options. Students, faculty, and staff will be required to be fully vaccinated to return to campus or live in the residence halls to ensure the safety of our community. Learn more about the activities that we have lined up to get you started at Mills!
Mills has been exploring innovative opportunities to extend our legacy since our March 17 announcement that we would stop enrolling new first-year undergraduate students after fall 2021. We are excited to announce that we are pursuing a potential alliance with Northeastern University to become a college within their global network.
While Mills is no longer enrolling new first-year undergraduate students after fall 2021, we are still enrolling new transfer and graduate students who can complete their degrees by 2023. There is still time to achieve your dream of a Mills education.
Mills has been breaking barriers for women since we were founded in 1852. We continue that legacy today as we fight for gender and racial justice through our support for the Black Lives Matter Movement and our commitment to becoming an antiracist institution.
