Breaking Barriers to a Top-Ranked Education

Mills Reduces Undergraduate Tuition by 36%.

Mills was founded in 1852 to provide educational opportunities to women, defying the convention of the time. Today, we are breaking barriers again by dramatically lowering our undergraduate tuition beginning in fall 2018. Our goal is to provide access to students of all backgrounds so they can experience a life-changing education that prepares them to be leaders in their careers and communities.

Mills Stands Out as One of the Best in the West.

Mills has been consistently named a top 5 best value college by U.S. News & World Report based on our high academic quality relative to the net cost of our tuition. Reducing our undergraduate tuition upfront will make it easier for students and families to see that a Mills education is accessible.
