While Abroad

While Abroad

Congratulations! You've settled in safely at your study abroad destination! This page is your portal for all things Millersville and Global Ed. related. This will ensure that everything will continue to run smoothly while you are away and make your transition back to MU as simple as possible.

Keep in touch with your Program Coordinator!

Checked in with MU and your family? Make sure you let Global Ed. and your family know that you have arrived safely and that you are okay.

Check your Marauder Mail lately? This is how all important information is communicated by MU and Global Ed. so don't forget to check it on a regular basis.

Is  your class schedule finalized at your host university yet?  If you take any classes that you did not get an equivalency for on your Resident Credits Form, make sure to email your Program Coordinator and academic advisor right away! Having an accurate Resident Credits Form will expedite the processing of your transcript so that your DARS will show your classes and grades for your semester abroad and help ensure that you make academic progress.

Keeping a blog or journal? Don't forget to tell us about your experiences. We love to hear from you!
