Admissions Information

The Office of Admissions is actively working with prospective students during the COVID-19 healthcare crisis and continues to accept and process admission applications and all related materials. We have moved our admissions events and processes online for your convenience.

Undergraduate Students

We encourage you to attend one of our upcoming online information sessions to learn more about our academic programs and the Mills experience.

To speak one-on-one with a Mills admission counselor, undergraduates can book a phone or video consultation using our easy online reservation form. For additional questions, email us at admission@mills.edu or use our form to connect with your admission counselor and send a message to them directly. We'll respond to your email or message in 1–2 business days and look forward to answering your questions.

As part of our commitment to making a Mills education accessible to as many students as possible, we have been a test-optional institution since 2016. If you feel that a standardized test score (SAT or ACT) reflects your academic ability, you can choose to have it sent to Mills. We do not, however, give preference to admission applications that include test scores. In fact, only 51% of our 2019 incoming class choose to provide their standardized test scores. You can visit our test-optional policy and FAQs web page for more information.

Students should visit the undergraduate How to Apply web page for detailed information on submitting application materials, including transcripts, electronically.
