Students who are not U.S. citizens or U.S. permanent residents must submit a valid government-issued passport and a U.S.-issued F-1 Student Visa to enroll at Mercer. To obtain the F-1 Visa, you'll need to complete an I-20 form. The University has been authorized under federal law to enroll non-immigrant students and to issue I-20 Forms. A Declaration of Finances, in U.S. dollar equivalents, verifying that you have adequate financial resources to cover the costs of attending Mercer University is also required as part of the Visa process.

Transfer Students

Next steps for transfer students vary slightly from next steps for first-year students, so we've made a list specifically for you. Take a look at the transfer enrollment checklist to see your dates, deadlines, and reminders as you complete the enrollment process at Mercer.
