Global Ambassador Program
What is the Ambassador Program?
Consider becoming a Global Ambassador! This professional program is designed to help connect global interests and experiences at Millersville. You will have the chance to work with MU’s international student population and a chance to help globalize your campus by sharing your stories and encouraging others to study or intern abroad. Great for portfolios and resumes!
Check out the main website for the program HERE.
Already thinking ahead about how you can make your study abroad experience work for you after you return home? Anthropology, Business, Communications, Government, International Studies and Sociology, Public Relations Majors are welcomed to apply!
Intern at Global Education!
If you are any major other than what is listed above, you should contact your academic advisor(s) ASAP and ask if they would be willing to grant you credit for the internship. Make sure to send them the job description! Global Education only accepts students who would be interning for academic credit.
Global MaraudersGlobal Marauders is a social club that promotes and encourages friendship, communication, and support between international and MU students. Global Marauders provides a place where students can socialize, connect, and learn about each other as well as other cultures. If you are interested in this new club, please contact GlobalEdGA2@millersville.edu
Study Abroad Transfer of CreditGlobal Education emails study abroad participants while they are abroad to confirm that all classes taken at their host institution match those listed on their Study Abroad Transfer of Credits Form (and that pre-approved equivalencies have been provided). If you responded to this email and finalized course equivalents for any courses you took that were not originally on your Student Abroad Transfer of Credits Form, there should be no issues with the transfer of your credits.
Your host university/program should send transcripts directly to Global Education. If your Transfer of Credits Form matches the courses listed on your transcript and we receive the transcript at Global Education, you will receive via email an electronic copy of your transcript before we forward the original to the Registrar's Office. Note: It can take up to 6 weeks to process the transcript so that your classes taken abroad appear on your DARS.
If you took any classes that were not listed on your original Study Abroad Transfer of Credits Form and you did not contact the Office to revise it, there will be a delay to get your credits posted to your DARS. If this is the case, you must contact Global Education or your Program Coordinator directly for further instructions. Your transcript cannot be processed without your Study Abroad Transfer of Credits Form being revised.
