Test Optional

Mercer’s Test Optional admission policy allows first-year students with an unweighted GPA greater than 3.35, and transfer students who have a college GPA greater than 2.5, to apply to Mercer and be considered for admission without submitting SAT and/or ACT scores. Students may apply to Mercer without test scores and submit the standard application requirements. To help you understand our Test Optional policy, we have included some information below.

Beginning August 1, 2022, students can apply to Mercer University with self-reported standardized test scores. Official scores must be submitted prior to enrollment.
