Move-In Day & Welcome Week Parent Webinar 2016

Please click here to access the recording of the Move-In Day & Welcome Week Webinar that was held on 8/4/2016 prior to this past year's Welcome Week. Our goal through this webinar was to answer any questions regarding the Move-In Day process and transitioning to Messiah College.

The webinar:

  • Reviews steps your student should've accomplished prior to arrival (choosing their room, academic courses, getting ID ready)
  • Discusses what to bring/not bring to campus
  • Provides information concerning safety on campus
  • Helps you navigate student financial services, student employment, & payroll
  • Touches on areas such as academic support and advising, disability services, library facilities, and FERPA
  • And, of course, addresses what to expect on Move-In Day
