"Killed by signal 2" means I hit Ctrl-C when it became eminently clear that the 
green.ucdavis.edu wasn't about to complain that I wasn't authorized to use their system. So if 
the error message from the first run is what you were seeing, then try adding the -N option.

[bloom@cat-in-the-hat ~]% head .muttrc
# imap and ssl settings
set certificate_file=~/.mutt_certificates
set imap_user=kabloom
set imap_force_ssl=yes
set spoolfile=imap://green.ucdavis.edu/INBOX
set folder=imap://green.ucdavis.edu/
mailboxes imap://green.ucdavis.edu/INBOX /var/spool/mail/bloom
# use `mutt -y` to be able to view local mail

Considering that this snippet of my .muttrc works fine for me, I would say that campus does 
support SSL.
