Specific College to Messiah Major Equivalencies

Transfer Course Equivalency Database

Please keep in mind that curriculum may change. You will be held to the major/QuEST (Gen Ed) requirements for the catalog year in which you enter Messiah.

 A few helpful hints...

  • To confirm that a course will meet a QuEST (Gen Ed) requirement, click on the Messiah course (ie. HIST 141), to view the course description. The prefix does not guarantee a course satisfying a QuEST (Gen Ed) requirement (ie. HIST 171 or 172 meets non-western, not US or European History).
  • ARTH (Art History) courses do not meet the QuEST (Gen Ed) Arts requirement.  
  • Anatomy and Physiology I and II must be taken at the same college. You either take both at the transfer institution or at Messiah to ensure all needed topics are covered.
  • Messiah's current transfer credit maximum policy: Your last 30 credits must be taken at Messiah. If an exception is needed, please complete an Academic Policies Petition (available in the Registrar's Office).
