Our Review Process

(how we evaluate applications)

At Millsaps, we take a holistic approach in our application review process so we can learn all about you. We review your academic record, completed course work, academic performance, prior school background and standardized test scores.

Since most of our applicants are high achieving scholars, we also consider any submitted biographical information, extracurricular activities, personal essays and recommendations.

Admissions and scholarship notification will be mailed on a rolling basis as your application files are completed.

Transferring Credits

To understand how your classes transfer, we will prepare a transfer credit evaluation. This usually takes about two weeks to complete, and it will be emailed directly to you, along with the contact information for your transfer faculty advisor. This will help you understand your timeline at Millsaps and give you a chance to ask questions about the academic program you are interested in at Millsaps. Remember that transfer students are given priority registration.
