Making Payments

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.

How to Pay

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.

  1. Log in to the Mills Resource Portal. If an authorized user is making a payment on your behalf, they must log in through the Authorized User Login webpage.
  2. Under the myMills Resources section, click on Account Billing and Payments, then click on Make a Payment.
  3. Select the eCheck option in the Make a Payment section. You will be asked to enter your bank account and routing information.

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:
