In each of our top-tier academic programs Mercy focuses on giving students the real-world knowledge and skills that will make them stand out in a crowded field. It’s why so many of our students start internships as early as freshman year and get their foot in the door at some of the best companies in and around New York City.

We are committed to your success. Almost every college has advisors, but at Mercy we take it a step further – we give you a mentor from day-one who’ll help you excel while at Mercy. Your PACT Mentor helps you navigate financial aid, choosing the right major and registering for classes.
