Course Equivalency Database

Course equivalencies for Messiah-approved off-campus study programs are listed on the Registrar's website. This is the most up-to-date information about what courses have previously been approved for either major or general education requirements. THIS DOES NOT MEAN THESE COURSES WILL BE OFFERED EACH SEMESTER.

Note from the Office of the Registrar: The general education requirement for Ethics, Worldviews, Pluralism and Science Tech and the World, integrates a Christian perspective in the course content. As a result, these requirements are satisfied only when taken at Messiah University or a comparable Christian college or university. Similar courses taught at secular institutions, public and private, will not fulfill the general education requirement.

  • Students should still review their course options with their advisors
  • Students should still complete an “Off-Campus Study Course Approval Form” by the Terra Dotta deadline date
