Incoming Students-Fall

Pre-Orientation

The Millersville Arrival Program (MAP) is an online pre-orientation program for all incoming new undergraduate students. It contains important information related to your summer orientation program and tasks you must complete prior to your start at the beginning of the semester. You are expected to complete each module of the MAP as it becomes available to you.

The MAP is viewable on tablets and most mobile devices in addition to your computer. You can work at your own pace, stopping and continuing at any time. Once completed, you may refer back to it at any point in your MU career! 

To access the MAP, you will need to have previously activated your Millersville Online Accounts. Do this by clicking this link, https://myaccount.millersville.edu, and following the instructions under the “First Time Account Setup (Incoming Students)” icon. You will need to provide your birthdate as well as your Marauder Student Identification Number, or “M number” which can be found on your admission acceptance letter or your paid confirmation deposit email (available in your application account). You can then use your Millersville username and password to access the MAP. 

Contact New Student Programs at 717-871-4370 with any questions or concerns about your next steps at Millersville University.

*Your Millersville email is the means by which the University will convey official information to you. You should get in the habit of checking your Millersville email regularly to avoid missing important information about orientation, housing, and your academic program.
