Students Applying for Admission to Mills

Don't worry—your potential need for financial aid won't affect our admission decision. We select applicants on a "need-blind" basis and more than 90 percent of our undergraduate students receive some form of financial assistance.

We're here to help you navigate the financial aid process. Use the Connect with a Counselor form to reach out to your admissions counselor with any questions you may have. Your counselor can also connect you with a Mills financial aid specialist, if needed.

Continuing and Returning Mills Students

As a Mills student, you may continue to receive aid as long as you maintain satisfactory academic progress. With need-based financial aid, if there is little change in your family’s financial circumstances from year to year, you can expect to be offered a similar level of aid for each of your undergraduate years as long as you meet the College's published application deadline. For questions, we encourage you to contact the M Center to speak with a financial aid specialist.

If you have additional questions, we encourage you to contact the Office of Financial Aid to speak with a financial aid specialist.
