THINGS TO KNOW
|At Mercer, our students 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 and transfer students who have completed fewer than 30 credit hours may choose to be considered for admission without submitting official SAT or ACT test scores. International students wishing to apply to Mercer as Test Optional will have additional requirements.|
