How To Apply
Applicants with more than nine (9) undergraduate credit hours after high school graduation are considered transfer students. If you have fewer than nine hours of college credit, contact us for more program options.
For admission to Mercer’s bachelor’s degree completion program for busy and working adults, applicants must have a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 2.25 or higher on a 4.0 scale. Some specific programs of study have higher admission criteria—see individual academic program pages to review program-specific requirements. Students with slightly below a 2.25 GPA who meet all other requirements may be considered for conditional admission. Transient and non-degree applicants should consult the nursing school or pharmacy school program of interest for any additional requirements as it relates to GPA.
Required transfer application materials include:
- Completed application for admission
- $25 non-refundable application fee ($50 for international applicants)
- High school or GED transcript (if applicable)
- Official college transcripts of all college-level work from all previously attended institutions
Note: Transient and non-degree applicants may submit an official copy of their most recent transcript for admission.
After we receive all of the required documents, we’ll move quickly to evaluate your application for admission. You should receive a decision within one week.
How To Order Your Official Transcripts
For quickest delivery, Mercer prefers that you select electronic (PDF) delivery.
- Visit your previous or current institution’s Registrar’s Office website, and search “transcripts.”
- Follow the instructions for ordering your official transcript.
- When prompted, select Mercer University as the recipient.
Note: Mercer only accepts official transcripts sent from other institutions, either indirectly through ordering services or directly from the institution. We cannot accept any official transcripts sent from the applicant’s email. If your institution does not utilize electronic (PDF) delivery, enter: Mercer University, Office of University Admissions, 3001 Mercer University Drive, Atlanta, GA 30341.
If you have questions about the transcript request process, contact us to discuss more details.
Returning to school after 20 years can be intimidating! Mercer was great because I was in an environment with other adult learners and I didn’t feel out of place. The students were my age, we all faced the same challenges, and we motivated each other.
As you push forward, we've always got your back.
