Future Lakers: Still Time to Apply for Fall 2020
In light of the COVID-19 crisis, we’re adopting greater flexibility in the application process, including waivers for standardized tests and moving Decision Day from May 1 to June 1.
Although current public health challenges prevent us from hosting you for an in-person campus visit, you can still explore Mercyhurst and discover the Laker Life without leaving home! Our Virtual Campus Tour provides prospective students and families the opportunity to experience campus from the safety and comfort of their home. Our virtual campus visits give you the chance to experience the history, academic culture, hospitality, and spirit of community that animate life at Mercyhurst.
