NOTIFICATION OF ADMISSIONS DECISION
Mercyhurst University operates on a rolling admissions model. Applications are accepted throughout the year. Notification of an admissions decision is provided to an applicant as soon as possible after all materials and credentials have been received. Generally, an offer of admission is valid for one academic year, provided the student did not enroll at another institution in the interim. The forensic and biological anthropology program and the physician assistant studies program have enrollment limits; an offer of admission is valid only for the term for which the person applied.
Accepted students who wish to confirm enrollment might be required to submit a deposit. Deposit amounts vary, based on student type and academic program. The deposit is nonrefundable and will be applied to the student’s first semester tuition.
RIGHT TO RESCIND OR MODIFY ADMISSION POLICY
Mercyhurst reserves the right to revoke admission or enrollment. A disciplinary matter, criminal conviction, or conduct contrary to the university’s core values — occurring prior to application or after an admissions decision has been made — might affect the university’s decision regarding admission.
Because offers of admission are based, in part, on academic achievement, Mercyhurst reserves the right to revoke admission or enrollment or reduce or revoke any institutional support (e.g., graduate assistantship) upon receipt of a final college transcript that reflects a significant decline in academic performance. If an applicant is discovered to have misrepresented any information during the admissions process, admission can be revoked.
