The Office of Admissions, in consultation with the appropriate academic departments, is responsible for awarding transfer credit. Your transcript will be evaluated on a course-by-course basis by a member of our Transfer Team to determine course equivalencies.
A maximum of 75 credits may be accepted upon transfer from accredited two-year colleges. A maximum of 90 credits may be accepted upon transfer from accredited four-year colleges. Combined transfer credits from two- and four-year colleges may not exceed 90 credit hours.
Credit is usually transferable for all courses in which the applicant has obtained a grade of "C" (2.0) or higher. If a student has an associate’s degree and an average of "C" in courses taken for that degree, he/she will ordinarily receive full credit for all courses that have been completed successfully. If a student has an associate’s degree, which includes a minimum of 48 credits in liberal arts and sciences and an average grade of "C" in courses taken toward that degree, he/she may receive full credit for having completed the general education requirements for the bachelor’s degree at Mercy College, with the exception of any general education courses that are prerequisites for the major in question
Matriculating students must successfully complete at least 30 semester hours of credit in residence, 15–21 credits of which must be in their major concentration, in order to receive their degree from Mercy College.
