While your classes have been moved to a mixed modality of in-person and online, so has our office! The Office of Financial Aid staff is continuing to work remotely during our normal business hours (Monday through Friday, 8am-4pm) to ensure that financial aid continues to be processed for students. We also have physical in-person and call center hours available:

Fall Semester Customer Service Hours:

  • Our physical office will be open Tuesday and Thursday from 9am-3pm with a limited staff. 
    • If you must take care of business with us in-person please be sure to wear your mask and adhere to the returning to campus guidelines. We may ask you to verify that you have a "green check" mark in the LifeSafe app prior to doing in person business. 
  • Our call center phone lines are also open from 9am-3pm on Tuesday and Thursday.
    • For questions regarding your financial aid you can call us at 717-871-5100 during these times. If you are calling the office, please make sure to have your Millersville ID number ready and be prepared to verify your identity.

Fall & Spring Housing: 

If you opted out of the dorms for the fall and/or spring semesters, you most likely need to complete a Housing Status Form for our office. Please check your Financial Aid Requirements to see if this has been requested from you. If you see this requirement on your account, please complete the Housing Form as soon as possible to avoid further delays to your financial aid payment. 

HOUSING STATUS FORM

Fall Enrollment: 

Now that the drop/add period has ended for the fall semester, if your current enrollment is different from the anticipated enrollment we had listed for you in your MAX account, your account will be under review before your financial aid can disburse. Theis review is to ensure your enrollment, cost of attendance, and financial aid are accurate. Please allow processing time for this to be reviewed by a financial aid counselor.

Spring Enrollment:

If there is a change to your anticipated enrollement for the upcoming spring semester, please make sure to fill out the Change of Enrollment Form online, so that your financial aid can be reviewed and credited towards your spring bill.

Spring 2021 Billing Notice:

The instruction modality for Spring 2021 will be similar to the Fall 2020 semester, with a majority of courses offered remotely.  Due to this change, decisions are still being made regarding adjustments to fee structure.  The Office of Student Accounts will not be issuing bills for the spring semester until all decisions are final.  This message will be updated with an actual billing date once one is available.
