Mills students must pay or arrange for payment for all semester charges (less financial aid) by August 1 for the fall semester and January 2 for the spring semester.* Students who do not meet these deadlines will not be able to register for classes or occupy on-campus housing and are subject to a late payment fee.
*Be sure to check the due date listed on your eBill statement. That due date supersedes any payment deadline listed on any Mills website.
The quickest and easiest way to pay your balance in full is through an online Electronic Funds Transfer (eCheck) using funds from a checking or savings account. All balances are payable in US dollars.
Mills does not accept credit cards for the payment of semester charges unless the student has enrolled in a monthly payment plan. Even for students who elect to choose a payment plan, the College does not encourage the use of credit cards for the payment tuition and fees.
Students and authorized users can also pay balances through the following methods:
Mail a check, cashier's check, or money order payable to Mills College to:
Attn: Student Accounts Office
5000 MacArthur Blvd
Oakland, CA 94613
To ensure that you do not incur a late payment fee, be sure to mail your payment so that it arrives on or before the semester deadline. Checks, cashier's checks, and money orders also may be taken in person to the cashier window in Sage Hall.
All in-person cash payments must be completed at the cashier window in Sage Hall.
Email the College's Finance Office at email@example.com for our most current wire transfer information.
Please note that your bank may charge you an additional amount to complete this transaction. The amount varies by bank.
Students who do not meet billing deadlines may be assessed a late payment fee of $50 for each month that payment is late. If you believe that you or your student will have difficulties making a payment on time, please contact the Student Accounts Office as soon as possible via email at firstname.lastname@example.org, via phone at 510.430.2000, or in person during business hours.
If you incur additional charges during the semester, you have several payment options:
