Transfer Student Orientation

TransferMation Days!

We look forward to you joining the Marauder community this fall. You will be assigned to one of four summer TransferMation Days based upon your date of deposit. You are asked to confirm your participation or request one of the later dates using the survey link emailed to your Marauder email account.

We know that you’ve been in college before. That’s why we’re taking a different approach to getting you ready to join the Millersville University community. When you come to campus for TransferMation Day, check in with us and then take advantage of any of the programs listed on the schedule. You decide what you need from the program. Stay for a few hours, or stay for the day. Members of the orientation team will be here to assist you throughout the day, and you can stop by the Hospitality Center at any time to relax and re-focus.

The 2020 summer TransferMation Days are:

  • Friday, June 19, 2020
  • Monday, July 06, 2020
  • Friday, July 24, 2020
  • Monday, August 10, 2020

If you are transferring in fewer than 16 credits or feel that you would benefit more from a traditional, new student orientation program, you may request to be reassigned from your TransferMation Day to the New Student Orientation. The program occurs in late August immediately prior to the start of the semester (August 20 through August 23). In the New Student Orientation, incoming first-time-in-college students are assigned to small groups with an orientation leader and participate in programming and activities over three or four days. if you have spent relatively little time at previous institutions, you may find this more intensive introduction to the University to be beneficial.

To participate in this program, complete the confirmation survey sent to you regarding TransferMation Day and request participation in the New Student Orientation program. We will reassign you to the late August program.


Information regarding your program will be provided through your Millersville email account prior to your orientation date. If you have a conflict on the date you are scheduled for your assigned date, the Office of Orientation and Transition Programs will work with you to find an alternate date, space permitting. In the meantime, please complete the pre-semester checklist found in the Marauder Arrival Program.

Orientation Fee

Transfer students are required to attend an orientation much in the same way that students are required to attend classes. An orientation fee is applied to your semester bill to cover the expenses associated with the program you are required to attend:

  • Transfer students assigned to the one-day TransferMation Day - $50
  • Transfer students choosing to participate in the New Student Orientation:
    • Residential Student Orientation - $335
    • Commuting Student Orientation - $264

Our commitment to campus service providers and material costs prevents the issuing of refunds should you be unable to attend the program.
