Due Before Enrollment
A nonrefundable enrollment deposit of $300 is required of all entering undergraduate students by May 1 or within two weeks of the date on the admission letter, whichever is later. The fee will be applied toward the first payment of tuition and fees, and is nonrefundable.
Final secondary school or college transcripts must be submitted to the Office of Admissions by July 1 for fall enrolling students and January 10 for spring enrolling students. Transcripts of summer session work should be forwarded to the Registrar’s Office as soon as they are available.
These results must be received before a student will be allowed to enroll or before financial aid funds will be disbursed. Students may not be allowed to enroll if their final documents are not on file at Mills.
All offers of admission are contingent upon maintenance of the standard of performance on which admission was based.
An admitted undergraduate student may request, in writing, to delay entrance for up to one semester. Students must submit a $300 non-refundable enrollment deposit to secure their space in the next academic term. If a student defers their enrollment from a fall to spring term, initial offers of financial aid will be honored for the new spring entry term. Spring to fall term deferrals will result in a request for an updated FAFSA and be subject to a revised award. Students wishing to take a gap year will not have their offer of admission extended beyond the one semester deferral policy, but will have to reapply for admission in the subsequent application pool. Offers of merit scholarships are not guaranteed to carry over beyond one concurrent semester.
Room and Board Agreement
Students who will live in campus housing are required to submit a housing application and a one-time nonrefundable application fee of $250.00 by posted deadlines.
Student Health Plan
All Mills students are required to waive or enroll in a Student Health Plan each fall term during open enrollment. Details are provided with pre-registration materials and online.
