International, MK, and TCK Student Orientation

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.

For Spring 2021 you will participate in an online orientation. Watch your email for details about online orientation. 

The first day of classes is Thursday, January 21, 2021.

Please stay tuned for further information.
