The MacMurray Match 

Millikin University is pleased to offer MacMurray students what we are calling 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, a student 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 and complete necessary verification requirements to be eligible. Students who transfer in with senior year status will also be offered 50% off of rent in our campus apartment complex – The Woods at Millikin.
