Transfer Support Resources
Transferring is not a static event. Transfer students need ongoing resources and support as they transition to MU. To address this, we have general advisement help for students to navigate the transfer process. Questions about services, classes, transcripts, etc. can all be addressed and funneled through Academic Advisement & Student Development - McNairy Library (871-5333).
A large population of transfer students are also commuters. Students who commute are encouraged to get fully involved in the campus community by attending events, staying on campus in between classes, and taking advantage of all the University offers. There are two areas identified for commuter students as lounge areas to be used in between classes or activities – Philadelphia House and Club de’Ville. Philadelphia House is located on W. Frederick Street across from the Boyer Building parking lot. This house offers an environment for commuters to relax and do work. There is a full kitchen, locker room, public gathering space as well as quiet rooms on the second floor to study. The hours are 8 a.m. – 10 p.m. In addition, in the Student Memorial Center Club de’Ville is considered a commuter lounge during the day. Located on the ground floor the lounge includes gathering space and computers. At night you’ll find plenty of student activity events taking place.
Millersville University also has a Commuting Students Association, an organization designed to serve all commuting students on campus. Learn more about their meetings and events.
Military Students and Veterans
Many transfer students come to Millersville after spending time in the military. They bring an abundance of experience as well as special needs and concerns. Millersville has dedicated people trained to provide the best information to our active duty and military veterans. A Student Veteran’s Association provides a place and organization for students and veterans to receive support and assistance in attending and successfully graduating from college. They also intend to provide leadership both on campus and to the community by organizing and being involved in civic projects and programs. It is further their intent to utilize the skills that military student have learned about how to adjust to changes in life and then pass that along to incoming and current students having a difficult time adjusting to college life. The student veteran's organization will also be a source of support for families of soldiers who are currently or preparing for deployments related to military service. The organization is free to join. For more information on the Student Veteran's Association, see their webpage. The Student Veteran’s Association has a dedicated house – a place for veterans to share past experiences in service with other veterans, host meetings, and a quiet study place. Mercer House is located on 28 West Cottage Avenue.
