Messiah is in session this fall with flexible in-person and remote learning options, health and safety protocols and student care and support.


Dates & Deadlines

The undergraduate Registrar's Office will be open for walk-in service Monday-Friday 9 a.m.-1 p.m with limited staff. Please note that email will be the preferred method of communication for fall in an effort to comply with social distancing guidelines. Our services have been modified to an electronic format via dynamic forms found on our Forms for Current Students webpage. If a face-to-face meeting is required outside of these hours, an appointment or Zoom meeting may be scheduled. Please view the Contact our Team page to confirm staff member responsibilities and contact information. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time.

Drop/ Add/ Withdraw Dates

Changes in course registration (including drop/add/withdrawal forms, practicum, independent and directed study forms) must be submitted to the Registrar's office by the dates published in the links below.  All electronic signatures must be included on the appropriate registration change forms, as well as proposals for independent study courses.

Final Grades Due Dates

Final grades are due from professors to the Registrar's Office according to the dates published in the links below. Please note that grade processing takes a few hours for the Registrar's Office to bring to completion.

Undergraduate Final Exam Schedule

Academic Policy: The final exam is an important and integral part of the semester.  The faculty use this time as part of the semester's educational experience and do not schedule events which conflict with the final exam schedule.  Students are expected to attend their final exams at the time indicated.  (See link below.) Travel arrangements are not sufficient reason for exceptions to the schedule.  Exceptions should be requested only for emergencies.

Students who have more than two (2) final exams in which the course credits total more than eight (8) scheduled on the same day may request a change of day for one of the exams. Requests for changes originate in the Registrar's Office and must be received no later than one (1) week prior to the beginning of exams.
