MU To-Go!

Welcome Marauder!

The University is committed to providing high quality instruction this fall to ensure our students' academic progress and success. Please see the University's COVID Updates page for the most current information related to the fall semester.

We look forward to you joining the Marauder community this fall. The current world health crisis has required both innovation and flexibility in aiding you as you prepare to start your MU experience. MU To-Go is a “come when you can, take what you need, leave when you want” online program to help you complete some required tasks prior to starting classes in the fall.  

All sessions are hosted “live”; you will be able to interact with the MU staff, faculty, and students of our “To-Go Team" who are eager to assist you. 

MU To-Go events are not all-day events and attendance is not mandatory. You can participate in one or more of the sessions described below on any of the days the MU To-Go program is offered. You can revisit the same session on different days to refresh your memory on a particular topic or to learn new information. The choice is yours.

Can I attend a traditional orientation program?

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 assigned to the New Student Orientation. The program is currently scheduled to occur 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 register for participation in New Student Orientation, contact the Office of Orientation and Transition Programs (717-871-5553 or; We will assign you to the late August program. Note that the fee for New Student Orientation is $335 for residential students and $264 for commuting students. The appropriate charge will be added to your fall semester billing statement.
