Step 3 – Admissions Advising and Official Program Plan:  As part of the Admissions process you are encouraged to meet with an admissions advisor. The advisor will assist you in developing an official program plan that fits your unique needs. All official transcripts must be submitted prior to the development of an official program plan.

Step 4 – Acceptance:  Miller College offers full acceptance and conditional acceptance.

Conditional acceptance is given if you have not submitted all of your credentials before the start of a semester. Conditional acceptance requires that you complete an application and submit student or unofficial copies of all transcripts from previous institutions attended. You may attend for one semester providing you have either earned an associate's degree or 30 semester hours (SH). During this time you must complete the admissions requirements. If the requirements are not completed, you will not be permitted to register for the following semester. Conditional acceptance expires after one semester regardless if you attended that semester or not.

Step 5 – Register for Classes:  Register for classes and begin an academic career at Miller College.

What if I attended an institution not accredited by a national or regional accrediting association? Will these credits be accepted?

The Miller College Admissions Committee will review this transcript and decide which of these credits can be accepted. If you would like more information contact an admissions advisor at 269-660-8021.

Tell me more about prior learning credit.

Miller College works with the student to prepare a portfolio. A committee evaluates the portfolio and makes the decision as to how many semester hours will be awarded.

For more information regarding non-graded credit, the process by which it is awarded, and the documentation required contact an Admissions advisor.

After review and evaluation of all transcripts and any non-traditional academic credit, a student must meet with an Admissions advisor.

Miller College Student Handbook

The Miller College Student Handbook is your comprehensive guide to everything you need to know in order to maximize the services of this college and earn a degree. While not every student will require all of the information that’s included in the handbook, it’s best to become familiar with it once you’ve been accepted for enrollment. It may not answer every question you may have but, chances are, it will help you find someone who can. 

Find an Admissions/Academic Advisor

Your Admissions Advisor helps you plan a program that fits your aptitudes, interests, personality and career expectations. Your program plan will list all the required and suggested courses needed to earn your degree.

If you’re a new student at Miller College, you must see an admissions advisor to establish your program plan before you register for classes. Current students are assigned faculty advisors in their program area to review and update their program plans. Students who decide to change their program of study must have a complete program review by an admissions advisor, develop a new program plan, and fill out a Change of Program form.
