Admission Updates

The Spring 2021 semester will be offered on-campus, with some online options. Our goal is to provide our distinctive educational experience while ensuring everyone’s health and safety. View our COVID response plan here »

We are accepting applications for future terms and will work with applicants to use unofficial transcripts for admission purposes. We also would be glad to arrange for on-campus or virtual tours, interviews, and meetings with our faculty and staff.

Campus Visits

We currently are scheduling both virtual and on-campus visits.

On-Campus Visits: We’d love for you to come see our beautiful campus, talk with admissions personnel, and get an idea of what it’s like to be part of #BuffNation! Please note that tour options will be limited and social distancing precautions will be followed according to our fall plan (masks are required and everyone must pass a screening test of basic health questions). You can tour campus, meet with a professor or coach, chat with admissions and financial aid personnel, eat in the cafeteria, and more.

Virtual Visit: Our admissions recruiters can meet with you via Zoom to discuss the admissions process, give you a virtual tour of campus, and connect you with faculty or coaches.

Due to COVID-19 safety precautions, we currently are NOT offering group visits or overnight stays.


Campus Preview Days

Throughout the year, we offer special events to experience #BuffNation. Join students from around the country for special sessions on admissions and financial aid, talk to professors and current students, learn about our academic programs and student life, and get to know what makes Milligan so special.

For 2020-21, these events are virtual events you can experience from the safety of your home. Learn more »

S‍pring 2021 Preview Days will be announced soon.


Due to the COVID-19 situation, requesting official transcripts may be difficult for most students. We can use unofficial copies for admissions purposes. We will work with you individually to use whatever you can provide us at the moment. Contact your admissions recruiter or reach out to for assistance with transcripts.

Test Optional

Milligan has moved into a test-optional evaluation process for the 2021 admissions cycle. We are making this change to give Milligan applicants a choice that will ease the anxiety that many future students and families are experiencing as a result of test-taking disruptions due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

We do still encourage students to take a standardized test – the ACT, SAT, or CLT – as they play an important role in determining course placement for our students.

Chat with our Admissions Staff

Have a ton of questions or something random to discuss? Schedule a meeting with our Admissions Staff! They’re a fan of video chat through Zoom, which gives you a chance to meet face-to-face while our campus is closed, but feel free to select one of the options to talk on the phone or text. We look forward to connecting!
