Important Stuff


Senior Exams

Seniors who plan to graduate in December 2014 must take Senior Majors Exams in Fall 2014 and those who plan to graduate in May 2015 must take their exams in Spring 2015. The Director of Testing will email students to schedule testing dates.

Credit by Exam

Official AP and CLEP score transcripts will be evaluated by the Director of Testing. Credit will be granted according to the policies established by the Milligan Academic Committee and outlined in the Testing Services section of the Milligan catalog.

  • If you took an AP exam and requested an official score report to be sent to Milligan College, applicable credit should be applied to your Milligan transcript by your first day of classes.
  • CLEP exams may be taken at any authorized CLEP testing site and score reports sent to Milligan College. Credit for CLEP exams will not be granted after a student has earned a cumulative total of 64 hours of college credit.

Requirements for exams are subject to change upon the recommendation of the Academic Committee. If you have any questions regarding AP or CLEP credit, please contact Cindy Wymer, Director of Testing, at 423-461-8415.

Language Placement

Milligan College encourages any student who has taken a minimum of two years of high school French, German, or Spanish to take the language placement tests which are offered on August 19 at 1:00 p.m. in Wilson Auditorium in Hardin Hall. These tests will determine the level of language study for which you are prepared. Brush up on what you already know so that you might have the opportunity to enroll in the intermediate level rather than the elementary level. All students seeking the Bachelor of Arts degree must earn credit through the intermediate level of a language.

Vehicles on campus

The use of a vehicle on campus is a privilege extended to the college community. Each motorized vehicle must be registered by the Student Development Office at the time you register for classes or in the Student Development Office after registration. Please have the following information when you register: license tag/plate number, color, make, model, and year of your vehicle(s). There is a $100 fine for not registering a vehicle or not displaying a sticker.

Each vehicle driven/parked on campus must be registered. Operators of these vehicles are expected to learn and follow the driving/parking policies on campus (outlined in the Student Handbook). Violators of these policies are subjecting themselves to significant fines and loss of vehicle privileges. Fines range from $20 to $100. All tickets must be paid in the McCown Cottage Business Office. Receiving more than ten tickets can result in the loss of driving privileges on campus.

Post Office Information

Did you know that Milligan College is the only college in the country that has its own official United States Post Office? Situated at the entrance to campus, the post office is here to serve you.  To receive mail on-campus, you must rent a PO Box online. Mail is not delivered to residence halls. All mail sent through the US Postal Service should be addressed to:

Food Services

Milligan College is offering a continuous service meal plan for students in the fall. The meal plan allows students to trade 25 meals per semester at the Student Center Snack Bar, more commonly called “The Grill”.

Students may also purchase a “Snack Bar Plus (SBP)” account. This account is available to all students. Residential students can add a SBP account to their standard meal plan on or before registration. This account allows students to grab a quick snack or meal at their convenience with the ease of using a prepaid credit line. The SBP account provides a $50 meal credit line at the grill for an additional charge of $40 to your meal plan. This 20% bonus credit is only available with meal plans purchased on or before registration. Additionally, if students want to add to their credit line, they may do so at any time after registration either in the cafeteria or the grill with a 10% bonus credit. Snack bar plus accounts do expire at the end of the academic year (May).

Music Ensembles & Private Lessons

All Milligan students are eligible to participate in music ensembles and music lessons. Join one of our great vocal ensembles (Women's Chorale, Concert Choir, Heard Mentality) or our fabulous instrumental ensembles (Orchestra, Jazz Ensemble, Jazz Combo, Brass Choir). Or you can learn a new instrument by signing up for lessons (guitar, flute, violin, etc.). You can even take classes to learn to read music (MUSC 141 Basic Music Reading Skills) or learn the piano (MUSC 124 Piano Class for Beginners). Participating in music is a great break from your studies and a wonderful way to make friends.

Express Books Enrollment

Express Books is a preorder system that allows Milligan College students to reserve their textbooks and have them waiting for pickup on August 16th for freshmen and August 18th and 19th for sophomores, juniors, seniors, and transfer students. This service eliminates any concern about when and how books will be purchased. You may decline any reserved book at the time of pick-up.
