THINGS TO KNOW
|At Mercer, you are more than a number, which is why we look beyond GPA and standardized test scores to review applications holistically. We look at a variety of factors to ensure that students will be successful in Mercer’s rigorous academic environment, including high school course selection, extracurricular and community involvement, leadership experience, letters of recommendation, essay responses, and more.|
|Through Mercer’s Test Optional admission policy, first-year students with an unweighted GPA greater than 3.25 may choose to be considered for admission without submitting SAT or ACT test scores.|
