Messiah College offers several options for dual-enrollment courses-select what works best for your schedule and learning style.
At our Mechanicsburg campus
During the academic year, Messiah College offers dual-enrollment courses at its main campus, located in Mechanicsburg, Pa.* This option provides a traditional collegiate classroom experience with face-to-face interaction with professors and classmates. Following the registration of Messiah's undergraduate students each term (fall semester, January-term and spring semester) the College makes remaining class openings available to dual-enrolled students.
*If you take an on-campus course, you must provide your own transportation to and from campus. Please consult with your guidance counselor to ensure that the class time does not conflict with your other academic schedules and requirements.
Messiah College encourages students to live and learn during the summer. Our summer online undergraduate courses, which run from June 8 through July 31, 2015, are available to eligible dual-enrolled students who are entering their junior or senior year. A list of recommended summer online courses for dual-enrolled students can be found here. For further information, including a course demo, check out Messiah's undergraduate online website.
On location in regional high schools
Messiah College offers dual-enrollment courses at select high schools in the central Pennsylvania region. All courses are taught by Messiah College faculty. Courses vary by location and semester, and you do not need to be enrolled at the school hosting the course to participate. (Students who do not attend the host school, however, are responsible for their own transportation.) Please be aware that high school host sites have up to a $75 administration fee per course.
