Arriving at Millersville - International Student Orientation

PREPARING FOR YOUR MILLERSVILLE UNIVERSITY EXPERIENCE

The Office of International Programs and Services supports new international students and scholars through a variety of events built into the required International Student Orientation (ISO), which is typically held the week before classes start. ISO includes educational workshops, meetings with representatives of the campus community, tours, and fun trips to get to know the Lancaster County area. In addition, ISO gives important information about immigration, getting involved in campus activities, differences in American classrooms, and other resources and services available for our students. We can’t wait to welcome you on campus!

All new international students will receive an email prior to orientation with additional information about arrival check-in and schedules. Students can also refer to the Next Steps Website for more information on preparing for your experience at Millersville.

Dates and important information about upcoming orientation programming is listed below. Please contact International@Millersville.edu if you have any questions.


IMPORTANT NOTES:

  • Completing the Marauder Arrival Program, attending ISO, and attending Student Success Seminars is required for all international students new to Millersville.
  • Attending ELI Orientation is mandatory for all new ELI students.
