Mills College is proud to educate students from around the world as part of our global learning environment. While all students experience new challenges when they start college, international students often face additional adjustments when they first come to the United States. To ensure that students are fully supported, Mills offers the following services for international students:
International Student Orientation
Mills College provides an International Student Orientation before classes start to help students adjust to the new academic and social environment of Mills, as well as to introduce them to the resources available for international students.
For more information about orientation, please visit the orientation website.
The International Student Advisors (ISA) are US government Designated School Officials (DSOs) who are available to help international students acclimate to school and life in the United States. International advising services include immigration advising and compliance, work permissions, and personal support and advocacy. International students are encouraged to be in close contact with the ISA throughout their time at Mills.
The ISA also work closely with all members of the Mills community to ensure quality programming that fosters global awareness, promotes respect, and facilitates understanding of the many cultures represented at Mills.

English Language Support
English language support is offered by the Multilingual Services (MLS) department of the Office of Learning, Advising, and Balance, located in Carnegie Hall. MLS provides one-on-one and small-group mentoring that is carefully tailored to match multilingual and international students' academic needs. Students can receive individualized tutoring support in a wide range of areas, including reading, writing and pronunciation of standard academic English. Additionally, MLS provides bi-monthly academic support workshops specially designed for international students.
