Transfer Students

Transfer applicants for the fall semester should complete the Common Application.

There is no fee to apply to Millsaps College.

Once you've completed and submitted your application, don't forget to submit the appropriate supporting documents:

  • Request a copy of your transcript from your college/guidance counselor.
  • Students with less than 30 hours of college-level work should submit an official copy of your high school transcript or GED. Standardized test scores (ACT or SAT)  Millsaps' ACT code is 2212 and SAT code is 1471. Scores appearing on official high school transcripts will be accepted.
  • Students for whom English is a second language should submit results of the IELTS or TOEFL (Millsaps' code is 1471).

Applicants will be selected on the basis of their academic record, the course work completed, performance in that course work, school attended, and performance on standardized tests. The applicant's biographical information, extracurricular activities and essay, along with recommendations, will also be considered in the decision-making process.

All admitted students will be considered for merit-based scholarships; students who wish to be considered for need-based financial aid must submit the results of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Millsaps' FAFSA code is 002414.

We value our transfer students so much that we offer guaranteed admission and scholarships to qualified transfer students who apply to Millsaps College.

While all students who have completed college-level work are encouraged to apply, all students with at least a 3.2 GPA and 30 transferrable credit hours are guaranteed admission to Millsaps PLUS at least $15,000 in scholarship funds.

Millsaps College recognizes the hard work of our partners in Phi Theta Kappa, so PTK members with a GPA of 3.5 and 30 transferrable hours are eligible for at least $17,000 in scholarship funds.
