The advisor is the student's principal connection to the academic programs of the College and is the first person to whom the student should turn for advice on academic questions and progress toward the degree (graduation). The advisor works with Academic Records to ensure progress toward completing the degree requirements.
Undergraduate students should also use the Degree Works tool to track their degree completion progress.
Please refer to the Mills College Catalog for more information on graduation.

Students who are approved to graduate In Absentia should submit an official transcript of the completed coursework to the M Center. If the courses are transferable, they will be posted to your record, and your record will be reviewed for graduation and posting of the degree. Once the degree is posted, it will be mailed to your permanent address of record. This process can take up to two weeks upon receipt of the official transcript for the completed coursework.
Students who have completed all of the degree requirements, have no outstanding grades, and have settled all financial obligations to the College will receive their diploma. Diplomas are mailed to the student's permanent address of record.
