Admission to Mercy College is a two-step process. The first step is College admission. The second step is program admission. Each program has admission requirements beyond those for College admission.

College applications are processed for general College admission before consideration to a professional program. Admissions Office personnel will determine if criteria for admission to the College have been met. Prospective students will receive an acceptance status after the application process has been completed.

Admission to the College does not guarantee admission to a professional program. Upon being granted general College admissions, students are encouraged to enroll in liberal arts and science courses at Mercy College.
