International Student Support

Mills College is proud to educate students from around the world as part of our global learning environment. While all students experience new challenges when they start college, international students often face additional adjustments when they first come to the United States. To ensure that students are fully supported, Mills offers the following services for international students.

International Student Orientation

Mills College provides an International Student Orientation before classes start to help students adjust to the new academic and social environment of Mills, as well as to introduce them to the resources available for international students.

International Advising & Support 

The International Student Advisors (ISAs) are available to help international students acclimate to school and life in the United States. International advising services include immigration advising and compliance, work permissions, and personal support and advocacy. International students are encouraged to be in close contact with the ISAs throughout their time at Mills.
