Students in Class

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.

Summer online

Messiah College encourages students to live and learn during the summer. All of Messiah College's online summer undergraduate courses are available to eligible dual-enrolled students who are entering their junior and senior year.

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.
