We recognize that many students have faced financial hardship and uncertainty due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In response, Mills has frozen tuition for the second year in a row to keep a high-quality graduate education at Mills as affordable as possible. Depending on the graduate program, the Mills tuition amount is based on either a flat rate per semester or a per-credit rate based on the number of courses you take.
