OFF-CAMPUS WAIVER FAQS

Below are frequently asked questions and their answers related to the off-campus waiver process to help you plan accordingly for the 2023-24 academic year.

Should I apply for on-campus housing for 2023-24 academic year?

If you are returning to Millersville University for the 2023-24 academic year and not eligible for a 60+ credit waiver, you should apply to secure campus housing.

I will not have 60 earned credits until I finish the spring 2023 semester. Can I still apply for a waiver?

Yes. University Housing & Conference Services (UHSC) takes into consideration the anticipated number of credits that you will earn for the spring 2023 semester. Keep in mind that you can become ineligible if you decide to withdraw from or fail courses that will put you under the 60-credit mark by the end of the spring 2023 semester.

What if my friends I want to live with have 60+ credits and are approved, but I only have 30-59 earned credits?

While you will be able to apply for a waiver on July 5, 2023, there is no guarantee that you will obtain a waiver. Additionally, those with 30-59 earned credits who are granted a waiver may only reside in Student Lodging, Inc. (SLI) communities and not elsewhere off-campus.

Some of my intended roommates and I have received a 60+ credit waiver, but one (or more) have only have 30 – 59 earned credits. What should we do?

Students with only 30 – 59 earned credits are not guaranteed a waiver. You should proceed accordingly assuming that your friend may not be granted a waiver. It is recommended that you make off-campus roommate arrangements with students who do have a 60+ earned credit waiver.

How many 30-59 credit waivers will be granted in July?

This will not be determined until immediately prior to July 10, 2023.

If I don’t have the required credit hours to move off campus, can I take summer classes so I do?

You may do so if this will place you at a level of 60 or more earned credits prior to the start of the fall semester.

What if I already signed a lease somewhere other than Student Lodging, Inc. (SLI)?

You may only sign a lease somewhere other than Student Lodging, Inc. (SLI) if you have acquired a 60+ earned credit waiver.

I received a waiver last year but never used it, can I use it this year?

No. You must apply for a waiver each year.

Can I transfer my waiver to someone else?

No. Waivers are not transferrable to other students.

If 30 – 59 credit waivers are granted in July, how are they chosen?

The waiver application will open the first week in July in MAX. Waivers will be granted in sequential order by the date and time of application until the number of waivers available are exhausted. Waivers granted for those 30 – 59 earned credits will not be based upon any intended apartment roommate arrangements that you may have.

If I do not know if I will be granted a 30 – 59 credit waiver prior to July 10, 2023, do I have to live on campus for the summer?

Students are not required to live on campus during the summer months but may do so.

Is there an appeal process for those students with 30 – 59 credits who were denied a waiver?

No. All decisions are final.

Move-In Day Expectations

Once you arrive to campus during your designated day and time, here is what you can expect:

  • Family and / or friends may accompany you for the move-in process for help, but we encourage you to limit the number of individuals needed for support due to traffic congestion and parking availability concerns.
  • We strongly encourage (but do not require) helpers to be fully vaccinated and / or wear a mask when arriving on campus given the number of individuals who will be on campus during the move-in process.
  • The entire move-in process can take between 1-2 hours long during peak periods.
  • Upon your arrival to campus, you will see signs pointing you where to go.
  • Please note that if you have more than one vehicle, only one at a time will be permitted to park next to the building for unloading.
  • When you arrive at your hall, you will be able to unload your belongings. The driver will immediately move the car to the designated parking area while you go to the check-in area to receive your keys.
  • We will have a limited number of faculty, staff, and student volunteers (“Movers & Shakers”) on hand to help. If you would like assistance, the Movers & Shakers will help you load your belongings into large carts for transport to your room as quickly as possible.
  • Due to the high number of new students moving in, at times you might find it easier to move yourself in without help from a volunteer Mover & Shaker.
  • After you unload the vehicle, you will need to move it to an open parking area, which may be on another part of campus. You will be directed to these areas.
  • We encourage you to pack lightly and bring any hard carts that you may have to expedite your move-in process.
  • Before you unpack everything, use a computer to check your e-mail and complete your room condition report. This is how you note any existing damage or worn items in your room so that you are not charged for them at the end of the year. Do not have a computer handy? Do not worry. We will have hard copies available for you to use. Just ask your RA.
