Mills College recognizes that many students have faced financial hardship and uncertainty due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In response, we have frozen tuition for the second year in a row to help keep a Mills education within reach. When you complete your admission application, you'll also be considered for scholarships and can apply for need-based financial aid. Our goal is to make a top-ranked education at Mills as accessible and affordable as possible.
