How do I complete the self-health assessment?
You and each of your guests should complete the following self-health assessment before traveling to campus: If you or a member of your group are experiencing any of the following symptoms, please stay home and contact us to reschedule. Fever, cough, mild or moderate difficulty breathing, sore throat, muscle or body aches, vomiting, diarrhea, new loss of taste or smell.
*Please do not submit the results of this assessment or any other medical information to the admissions office. This is meant to assist you in completing a self-assessment. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, please reach out to your health care professional.
How do I reschedule or cancel my visit?
You can reschedule or cancel your campus visit by replying to your confirmation email, sending us a text at 717-584-4928 or by calling 717-871-4625.
If you are unable to attend your scheduled visit, please let us know as your convenience.
Do I have to wear a mask?
The Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education (PASSHE) requires that all staff, faculty and visitors must wear a mask while on campus. If you are unable to wear a mask during your visit, please consider a virtual or self-guided tour.
How often are you cleaning and sanitizing your facilities?
Our trained housekeeping staff will thoroughly clean and sanitize all locations on the campus tour route and Lombardo Welcome Center daily. Restrooms in the Lombardo Welcome Center will be cleaned and sanitized a minimum of three times per day.
Can I use campus restrooms during my visit?
Visitors are permitted to use the restrooms in the Lombardo Welcome Center only.
How many visitors and guests will be in each tour group?
Information sessions offered in the Lombardo Welcome Center will be limited to 25. Our maximum capacity at any given time in the Center will be up to eight visitors and their guests, and one admissions counselor to comply with social distancing.
Tour groups will consist of no more than 10 total people consisting of 3 families (up to 9 people) and one tour guide.
How many guests may I bring to my visit?
Campus visitors are permitted to bring up to 2 guests. All visitors and their guests must reside in the same household. We appreciate your cooperation as we work to accomodate as many visitors and their guests as possible.
Do I have to provide contact information for guests I am bringing to my visit?
Yes. Guest information is required for contract tracing.
Will you share my information with the PA department of health or other health organizations?
We will only share your information with Lancaster General Health (authorized by the PA department of Health to handle contract tracing for Millersville University and the surrounding area) in the case that we are made aware of potential exposure to COVID 19. This will include name and phone number only; all other information collected in your tour registration will only be used by the admissions office. With any questions, please contact the MU Environmental Health & Safety Office at 717-871-4240.
What buildings will we see on our tour?
The modified campus tours include entering two buildings; one academic building to view a standard classroom, and one residence hall room.
May I request to go in additional academic buildings?
Your tour guide will speak with you about your intended major and make sure to point out which building(s) most of your classes will be held in. At this time we are unable to allow visitors to enter buildings that are not part of the current modified tour route.
What is open on campus?
At this time, all campus departments are closed and most employees are working remotely. If you are interested in speaking with a different Millersville department such as an academic program, financial aid, Housing, or any other services, please contact them directly to make arrangements for a virtual meeting at your convenience.
How do I check-in once I am on campus?
Please activate location services on your phone so you receive a text message when you arrive on campus. You will "check-in" by responding to the text. If you experience technical difficulties, staff will be available to assist you.
Can I meet with an admissions counselor while on campus?
At this time we are unable to accomodate private one-on-one meetings with admissions counselors. If you are interested in learning about the application process, please register for an information session or virtual counselor meeting.
Will my visit include information about your plans for fall 2020 re-opening?
For updates about re-opening, we ask that you check Millersville’s Fall 2020 page regularly. This information will not be covered during your admissions visit.
