A Few Things to Know About Undergraduate Admissions

We’re on a rolling admissions calendar. That means you once you apply, we’ll tell you if you are accepted in as little as two weeks. (Future nursing students may need to wait a bit longer.) 
We’re currently test optional! Applying for Fall 2024? You don’t have to submit SAT or ACT scores with your application. You can if you’d like to, but it is not required. 
A GMercyU education is within reach, financially. We’re proud that 100% of first-year and transfer undergraduate students receive some form of financial aid.*
*Does not include online programs. 


Whether it be our colleagues or our professors, everyone is here to help each other. There has never been a moment where I held back on asking a question or telling a story or showing up at my professors’ offices, whether about school or personal advice or anything – they are there to help us. There’s never a day that we don’t feel that.
