Wivina Chmura, MSEd
Associate Director of Admissions

Call: 215-641-5541
Text: 215-201-4070   

Wivina recruits re-admitted students and transfer students interested in these programs:

  • Bachelor of Science in Nursing
  • Education
  • History
  • History / Secondary Education
  • Public Health

Favorite Admissions Tip:  First and foremost, enjoy the process because college admissions is a process. Be organized. Make a chart for yourself with all of the schools that interest you and note the application, financial aid, and scholarship deadlines. Meet the deadlines!! Lastly, VISIT the campus in person. FEEL if you belong and if the college is a good fit for you.  



Daniel Koski, MEd
Associate Director of Admissions

Dan recruits first-year students. He also recruits transfer students interested in these programs:

  • Medical Laboratory Science
  • Occupational Science
  • Radiation Therapy
  • Radiologic Technology
  • Respiratory Care

 Favorite Admissions Tip: Don’t stop asking questions, and no idea is ever wrong. College has a “right of passage” sense, but sometimes students can feel alone in that passage. I never want a student to ever feel isolated/alone in their process, I am here to help them through this transformational experience. I am always ready to talk, hear them out, and help them through their journey.

Favorite Admissions Tip:  Don't forget about scholarships! There's probably one out there for you. No matter how small, every little bit helps. You have to remember books are probably going to be required and an important cost of your college life — spending an hour of your life writing an essay to earn a $500 scholarship is a simple and easy way to potentially pay for them! 

Meet a GMercyU admissions counselor at a high school visit, college fair, or information session. See if we're coming to your area!
