Degree Re-Evaluation for Former Students

Degree Re-Evaluation for Former Students

Former students of Messiah University who did not complete outstanding degree requirements may request to re-open their Application for Degree for purposes of evaluation. Students who are more than twelve (12) months from their original anticipated date of graduation are subject to a $75 fee which is assessed at the time the application is re-opened. After the evaluation, students have six (6) months to complete the outstanding requirements for the degree and after that time may be subject to an additional fee if another evaluation is required.

Note that the student is required to complete the curriculum and graduation requirements in effect at the time the application is re-opened. If requirements have changed since the student’s last attendance at Messiah, he or she is subject to the new requirements.

To initiate an evaluation for degree completion, send a letter in writing and include the following information:

  1. Reason for your request
