Undergraduate Student

Maybe you’re seeking a new challenge or a change of direction. At Mercer, you’ll find both. And we’ll be right beside you to turn your next chapter into your next achievement.

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 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 page to review program-specific requirements. Students with slightly below a 2.25 GPA who meet all other requirements may be considered for conditional admission.
