Credit Evaluation

The admissions department will carefully evaluate your transcript(s) to determine the number of credits that will transfer to Mercyhurst. In general, the credits you earned for courses in which you received a grade of 'C' or higher will transfer to Mercyhurst. You will receive a preliminary evaluation of transfer credits with your acceptance letter.

How Many Credits Does Mercyhurst Accept?

  • Maximum of 75 credits from accredited four year colleges and universities
  • Maximum of 60 credits from community or junior colleges.

Credits earned for orientation, practicum, internships, and student teaching do not transfer. AP credits will be considered for transfer upon review of original score reports.

Note that course credits transfer to Mercyhurst, but previous grade point averages do not transfer - all transfer students start a new grade point average that is based only on courses completed at Mercyhurst University.
