Visit Us

We offer a number of ways you can get to know us and determine if the School of Education at Mills is a good match for you.

Visit Mills Information Sessions
Throughout the year, the School of Education hosts information sessions where faculty, staff, and students describe our programs and answer individual questions from prospective students. We explain the admission and financial aid processes and meet in small groups to provide an insider's view of our programs. Light refreshments are served.

Application Workshops
You may also want to take advantage of one of our application workshops. At these informative, interactive events, prospective applicants share their questions about the process of writing a statement of purpose, requesting recommendations, and preparing for an interview.

Talk with Current Students or Recent Alumni
In each of our programs, current students and recent alumnae/i are willing to answer questions and share their experiences with you. Just send a request to education@mills.edu, and we'll match you with someone best suited to connect with you by phone or email.

Visit a Class
With a bit of notice, we are happy to arrange for you to sit in on any of our classes. This offers you an informal way to get to know current students and faculty and get a feel for what it would be like to be a student here. Please use this form to sign up for a class visit! 

Campus Tours
Education DegreesWalking tours of the campus are offered by the Office of Admissions daily.
