Your college experience – not to mention a great education – happens both in and out of the classroom. Here at Mercyhurst University, the ingredients to support your academic goals and enhance your continuing development are readily available. Your initiative, interests, creativity, and openness to exploring new experiences will make your life at Mercyhurst meaningfully memorable. Not everything is for everybody, but there is something for everyone.
Facilities and Resources
At Mercyhurst we believe that applying your knowledge should happen while you’re still in college so you can refine your skills and knowledge before moving on to either your career or to graduate school. That’s why in every major, you will have an opportunity to apply what you’re learning in a way that makes sense for your profession.
Each of our 40+ majors and in each of our more than 100 programs of study (minors and concentrations) have a way you can demonstrate that you know how to work in your field. You can build your resume or beef up your grad school application beginning in the first week.
Athletics / Sports
The Mercyhurst University intercollegiate athletics program reflects an institutional commitment to excellence by offering a wide range of programs for both the serious and recreational athlete.
The University’s intercollegiate athletics program is comprised of 24 varsity sports, with the Lakers fielding teams in 12 women’s sports and 12 men’s sports. Two of the programs compete at the Division I level (men’s and women’s ice hockey) while 21 participate on the Division II stage. Men’s rowing is the only varsity sport not recognized by the NCAA as a championship sport.
Financial Aid / Tuition
Mercyhurst University is dedicated to making a high-quality University education affordable. In fact, more than 95 percent of incoming freshmen receive institutional, federal or state aid.
Most scholarship and grant programs require that students be enrolled full time and maintain a minimum Grade Point Average (GPA). Most scholarships are renewable, but some are not. In order for students to continue receiving renewable scholarships, they must continue to meet the scholarship criteria. Students must also meet the minimum standards specified in the Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy for Financial Aid. Other scholarships may be based on athletic ability or talent. Mercyhurst also makes available scholarships and grants based on financial need. Students are required to file a FAFSA annually to continue to receive Mercyhurst need-based scholarships and grants.
Competitive. High school transcript, ACT or SAT scores, untimed 250-word personal statement, and academic recommendation form are required. Students applying to dance or music must also audition. Interviews and campus visits are strongly recommended. TOEFL and/or SAT are required of international students.
Rolling Admission. Recommended application deadline is March 1st. Offers of Admission are sent on a weekly basis beginning in early November. Accepted Student reply date is May 1st. Enrollment deposit is $400.
