Seniors who plan to graduate in December 2016 must take Senior Majors Exams in Fall 2016 and those who plan to graduate in May 2017 must take their exams in Spring 2017. The Director of Testing will email students to schedule testing dates.
AP & CLEP 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 will be applied to your Milligan transcript.
- 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.
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.
Interested in studying abroad? Start planning for the Spring Semester now! Availability is limited, so get your application in early during the fall semester.

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.
Rave Emergency Alert System
Students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to sign up (free) for the RAVE Alert mass notification system, which sends instant text and email alerts about emergency and crisis situations, including weather‐related schedule changes.
Sign up here once you have received your Milligan ID and login information. After opening the link, click on Register and enter your network ID (for students this is the ID you received containing the first four letters of your last name followed by four numbers; for faculty and staff this is your Milligan username) and password. From there you can follow the steps to complete your registration for the types of notifications you wish to receive.
If you have problems registering for the service or have any questions, please contact the IT Help Desk at 423.461.8704 or ITHelpdesk@milligan.edu. Please consider registering for this service, as it provides the fastest and most efficient means of communication possible in any potential emergency situation. The only messages sent through this system are emergency information and weather‐related schedule changes. If at any point you wish to be removed from the notification list, text STOP to 67283 or 226787 from your registered phone.
Milligan College offers a continuous service meal plan provided by Pioneer College Caterers. All students must bring proper Milligan I.D. to enter the dining hall or be prepared to pay the standard line rate. 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).
- Sick trays are available with a note of approval from a resident director, resident assistant, or college nurse.
- “Green on the Go.” If you are on the meal plan and can’t make certain meal times due to class or work schedules, sign up for this program. You can stop by the cafeteria and pack your meal in a recycled container.
- Special diets can be accommodated. Please provide the cafeteria in advance with an outline of your dietary needs.
- Nutritional awareness program. A booklet is available to explain the program and help you make sound choices concerning your diet and health.
