We are so excited for your journey at Messiah University to begin! This will certainly be a different than usual semester, but we hope that we can learn and grow together through the challenges. Please note, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have had to make significant changes to our orientation plans.
Fall 2020 online pre-arrival orientation for Multicultural, International, MK and TCK Students will be available beginning August 12, 2020 (all material will be asynchronous in order to accommodate your schedule). There will be an in-person orientation beginning Wednesday, August 19, 2020 at 9 a.m.
Immediately after Multicultural & International Student Orientation, you will participate in the general orientation with all students who will be starting their journey at Messiah University.
The first day of classes is Tuesday, August 25, 2020.
The purpose of Multicultural Student Programs at Messiah University is to meet the unique needs of domestic underrepresented students by providing holistic support through mentoring, diversity education and exploration, as well as safe and transformative learning environments for all members of the university community.
