Messiah announces new timeline for student move-out
Today Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf announced a “stay at home” mandate for the county in which Messiah College is located (Cumberland County). In response to this directive, Messiah’s previously announced housing check-out process has been postponed. Move-out dates have been delayed from April to May. Students must now remove all of their belongings from their residences between May 1 and May 31. All students (including graduating seniors) MUST be checked out of their room/apartment/house by May 31.
Additionally, students no longer have the option for an in-person check-out with their resident director (RD). To help ensure social distancing protocols, all check-outs must now be an express check-out (fill out the form here). Students must sign up for a check-out time no later than April 30. As always, more information can be found on our housing website here.
Since our check-out dates have changed, ALL students must sign up for a NEW check-out time (even if your original check-out time was in May).
Note: We will continue to monitor state and national directives, and this schedule is subject to change pending those outcomes.
Announcement on pass/fail options coming soon
In response to the College’s unexpected move to online learning for the duration of its spring semester, Messiah College’s administration is currently processing various pass/fail course options for students, as well as addressing any GPA impact on Messiah College scholarships. The College plans to make an announcement via email to students and on this website no later than Wednesday, April 1.
