  • Transfer Equivalencies

    Interested in how your current college credits will transfer into your online program at MU?  You can review our Transfer Equivalencies page for more information on how credits transfer from schools we work with frequently!

    *Note, we do accept credits from other regionally accredited schools not listed on this page!  If a college is not listed that does not mean we won’t accept their transfer credits.  If the college is listed but the course is not, it hasn’t been reviewed for transfer yet and will be reviewed upon receipt of an official transcript.

  • Applying for Early Acceptance

    We do review and admit students early before graduation of high school, associate’s or other bachelor’s degrees!  We do recommend applying once the final semester of your current level program begins.  You can submit an application and copies of all current official transcripts for early acceptance.

    Updated and final transcripts must be submitted before starting the program once graduation and the degree is completed.  Any missing pre-requisite courses must be completed and transferred in before beginning your online program.

  • Returning Students

    If you previously began a program at Millersville, you can reapply to return online!  If you are not currently an active MU student, you will need to submit a new application to reactivate and begin again.  You do not need to request your MU transcripts.  We will let you know if any other transcripts or documents are required!
