Dual Enrollment Students
Welcome to Millersville!
Congratulations! YOU ARE OFFICIALLY A MARAUDER! We are excited that you are taking advantage of the opportunity to participate in college courses on our campus. The information below is provided to help acclimate you to campus programs and services that you may access. Additionally, we are providing two opportunities for you to visit the campus in advance of the start of classes, to ask questions, and to gain a greater understanding of the differences between high school and college courses. Your participation is not mandatory, but we hope that you will take advantage of this opportunity to learn more about the Millersville campus, its services, and college academics.
Register for one of the two, 50-minute presentations we have planned.
We look forward to meeting you and your family. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Office of Orientation & Transition Programs, located in the Lombardo Welcome Center, or at 717-871-4370 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Before Attending Classes
The Marauder OneCard is your official student identification card. The card can be used to check out books from the McNairy Library, make purchases at the school store and dining locations (using Marauder Gold), and access the Ware Center (in Lancaster City). You should carry your Marauder OneCard any time you are on campus.
Marauder Gold is a declining balance program that works like a credit card in reverse. Money deposited into your Marauder Gold account may be used to make cash-free purchases at various on and off campus locations that display the Marauder Gold logo.
myVILLE is a campus-based portal permitting you to access many technology resources at the University. You’ll use your myVILLE account to access University email, your student records, computer lab resources, the online education platform, and the wireless network. From myVILLE you are able to access all the resources listed below.
To activate your myVILLE account you will need your student identification number, often referred to as your M#. This number is listed on your Admissions Acceptance Letter.
For complete instructions on activating your myVille account, visit https://www.millersville.edu/activate.
myVILLE Email uses the Outlook Web Email service (mail.millersville.edu). Enter your myVILLE username and password and you are good to go! Once you activate your Millersville email account, check it regularly. Millersville email is the primary means by which the University communicates with students.
Brightspace D2L, or D2L, is an integrated learning platform designed to create a single place online for instructors and students to interact, either for a completely online course or as a supplement to a face-to-face course. Ask your professor if you will be using D2L. Your D2L username and password are the same as those you use to log into your Millersville email and the myVILLE portal.
Millersville Access System (MAX)
MAX, the Millersville Access System, gives you real-time access to course registration, grades, transcripts, Marauder Gold, and other student records. The link for MAX can be found on the myVILLE Portal (https://www.millersville.edu/logins/). MAX can assist you with obtaining a parking sticker, making bill payments, and viewing and printing records and information. Your MAX username and password are the same as those you use to log into your Millersville email and the myVILLE portal.
Parking decals may only be purchased through your MAX account. You must go to the Parking Office in Lebanon House (237 N. George St.) to pick up the actual decal. You must have your Marauder OneCard in order to pick up your parking decal. The current commuter parking cost is $100 for the year or $68 per semester. This entitles you to park in any commuter space on campus. The portal to purchase your decal opens one month prior to the start of the semester (August 1 and December 1).
If you wish to save on costs, you may instead purchase a Restricted Parking Decal (i.e., Green Sticker), available for $70 per year. The Restricted Parking Decal permits you to park only in the Prince Street Garage (at the corner of N. Prince St and W. Cottage Ave). The University shuttle stops at the garage every 15 minutes.
