Yes! You can transfer up to 75 qualifying credits toward a bachelor’s degree. Our goal is to make sure you get all the credit you deserve. During your free transfer evaluation, a specially trained admissions counselor will review with you the work you’ve completed at other colleges and universities to see which courses transfer into your program of choice.

To streamline the process, we hold transfer agreements with many area schools.  

Articulation Agreements are partnerships with other schools designed to make the transfer process as easy as possible. Once you apply, we will complete a course evaluation to see which of your credits at that school are transferable.

Core-to-Core Agreements mean we will accept the general education credits completed for specific degrees from a community college.

Dual Admissions Agreements mean you’re guaranteed admission to GMercyU when transferring into a designated major of choice as long as you meet the eligibility requirements that are clearly spelled out in the agreement. Students transferring under the Dual Admission program are also guaranteed scholarships! To participate, students need to complete a letter of intent.

Program-to-Program Agreements are pathways, maps, or guides that indicate how the courses of an associate degree transfer to GMercyU’s major curriculum. These agreements provide guidance for the elective courses that students should complete in order to transfer in with junior-year status.

Signature Seminars are unique to GMercyU and every undergraduate student must take two of them (6 credits total). The Seminars range from a variety of topics and are taught by professors in multiple disciplines. GMercyU's core values of integrity, respect, service, and social justice are interwoven throughout each course. These inspiring, engaging courses underscore our University’s mission and commitment to making a difference and as such, seminars from other institutions are not transferable to satisfy a GMercyU Signature Seminar.

Yes! Learn more about our Residence Halls here. When you are accepted and make your housing deposit, you’ll just need to submit a housing application.
