Millikin prepared to assist MacMurray College students with articulated academic programs and financial aid

Millikin University is opening its doors to MacMurray College students affected by the planned closure of the institution announced on Friday, March 27, 2020. Millikin is prepared to assist MacMurray College students with articulated academic programs and financial aid during this time of transition.

Millikin University is fully committed to helping MacMurray College students finish what they started by offering students the "MacMurray Match." Under this program, students transferring to Millikin will pay the same amount of tuition to Millikin that they were paying to MacMurray.

In order to be considered for the MacMurray Match, students must be accepted for transfer admission to Millikin University and provide proof of their most recent billing statement from MacMurray College. Students will be required to file the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) at fafsa.gov and complete necessary verification requirements.

Students who transfer in with senior-year status will also be offered 50 percent off rent at Millikin's campus apartment complex – The Woods at Millikin. 

"We want to invite students who have been affected by the closure of MacMurray College to consider finishing their degrees at Millikin University," said Millikin President Dr. Patrick E. White. "We have been in cooperation with MacMurray to facilitate as seamless a transition as possible during this critical time."
