Dual Enrollment on the Messiah University Campus
New Student Orientation
Students who are taking a class with Messiah University for the first time in the fall of 2021 are expected to attend our virtual orientation session for new dual enrollment students on Tuesday, August 10, 2021 at 6:00 pm. We'll cover the items listed below (some of which are most relevant for students attending class on campus), as well as accessing Canvas, important dates/deadlines, FERPA, and more. Additional details will be emailed to all new students in late July or early August.
1. Get a parking permit
If you’re taking a class on campus, you’ll need a parking permit. In order to obtain your permit, please fill out this form and email it, from your Messiah University email account, to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note clearly on the form that you are a "dual-enrolled student" so that there will be no cost for the permit. (Without noting this, you will be assessed a fee.) Contact Falcon Exchange to determine when to pick you your permit.
2. Locate your classroom
If you are taking a class on campus, you'll be able to locate your classroom yourself by using the Campus Map. The buildings and parking lots are clearly marked so that you can figure out the best way to get to your class from your parking spot. If you would like to schedule an official campus tour, you can do that here.
3. Get a student ID card
In order to obtain your ID card, send a JPEG photo of yourself, from your Messiah University email account, to email@example.com. (Your photo must be forward facing, a full head shot, no hats or sunglasses and your eyes must be open.) Contact the Falcon Exchange, which is located on the second floor of Eisenhower Campus Center, to determine the best time to pick up your ID card.
4. Purchase textbooks
Textbooks can be ordered at Textbook Express, Messiah's book store. Visit Textbook Express online or on campus during the hours of 8 a.m.-4 p.m., Mon.-Fri. during the academic year.
5. Know emergency procedures
Please take a moment to review Messiah University's emergency procedures. Dual-enrolled students should sign up for Messiah's text message alert system, which will send a text message in the event of an unscheduled closing or delay due to inclement weather, or other campus-wide emergencies. While Messiah's campus is safe, it is important to know the procedures in the event of an emergency.
High school sites and summer online students
If you will be taking a course during the summer online or at a high school site during the fall or spring semesters, you will need to purchase textbooks. (Students taking courses at a high school site should consult with their guidance counselor.) Textbooks can be ordered at Textbook Express, Messiah's book store. You can visit Textbook Express online or on campus during the hours of 8 a.m.-4 p.m., Mon.-Fri.
If you are taking one of our dual enrollment courses at a high school site, you may obtain a student ID card. To do so, contact the Card Services Office for instructions. Students taking dual enrollment courses at a high school site are not eligible for a parking permit.
