Mills College offers two monthly payment plans to assist students who find that they
need to pay their tuition and fees in multiple installments over the course of a semester
instead of one payment in full.
|Payment Plan||Fall Semester||Spring Semester|
|Five-Month Plan||August 1–December 1||January 2–May 1|
|Six-Month Plan*||July 15–December 15||January 15–June 15|
*Students who wish to choose the six-month option must enroll in this plan before July 15 for the fall semester and before January 15 for the spring semester.
Please note that, in addition to the first monthly payment, a semester enrollment fee is due by the first payment deadline. This enrollment fee totals 3 percent of the balance due with a maximum fee of $300:
The College does not charge interest on your outstanding balance if you are enrolled in a monthly payment plan.
Undergraduate and graduate students can enroll in a five- or six-month payment plan by visiting the Mills Resource Portal, going to the myMills Resources section, and clicking on Account Billing and Payments. View this slideshow tutorial for step-by-step enrollment instructions.
You can complete a monthly installment payment online through a Electronic Funds Transfer (eCheck) or by credit card. While we do accept credit cards for installment plan payments, the College does not encourage their use for the payment of tuition and fees. If you choose to pay with a credit card, Mills accepts MasterCard, Visa, American Express, and Discover via the Mills Resource Portal.
To pay through eCheck (using funds from a checking or savings account):
You can also set up automatic payments that will be deducted from your selected bank account each month on the payment deadline.
**Authorized users must log in through the Authorized User Login webpage.
Installments can also be paid 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 monthly 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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 the payment plan deadlines may be assessed a late payment fee of $50 for each month that is paid late. Payers can set up automatic monthly payments to ensure that payment deadlines are met and to avoid late fees.
For payment plan questions, we invite you to contact the Student Accounts Office via email or phone, or in person during business hours.
