Admissions Requirements

Mercy College offers rolling admissions for students transferring from another college. Our priority application deadlines are March 15 for fall admissions and December 15 for spring admissions. All required documents must be received before an admission decision can be made.  

Admission decisions for fall are released beginning on, or about, October 15 and on a rolling basis thereafter. Applicants are typically notified of their admission decision within two weeks of completing the application.

Mercy College Transfer Credit Max

We make sure every credit transfers

We know how important it is to have your credits transfer over and be applied toward your specific program. We’ve created Transfer Credit Max so you can get a customized idea at how we can apply your credits and help you to see how quickly you can finish your degree at Mercy.

Once you are accepted, the Transfer Team in our Student Services Support Center (SSSC) will carefully evaluate your college transcripts, test scores and other documents for equivalent transfer credits.
