Transgender students that identify as female will now be considered for enrollment at Mills College, an all-female school in Oakland. Mills is the only single-sex college in the country to have a published policy for transgender applicants. We'll discuss the details of the new policy, and whether it would affect the core identity of the school as a women's college, especially in light of strong campus opposition to going co-ed in the past.
