For Advanced Placement Students

Applicants who have completed work in an Advanced Placement Program in high school may submit the results of the Advanced Placement Examination of the University Entrance Examination Board. College credit will be awarded for a satisfactory examination grade; score must be at least 3. Students awarded such credit in English or Mathematics will not be required to take the placement test in that area.

For Transfer Students

For most programs, transfer students should have a cumulative GPA of 2.0 in order to be considered for acceptance to the institution. Students applying for any of the University's Education programs should have maintained a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or above on a 4.0 scale. Students applying for the University's nursing program should have maintained a cumulative GPA of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale. In addition to our GPA requirement, some programs may require satisfactory completion of specific courses. Applicants can contact the Admissions Department for additional information on these requirements.

For Re-admission

A student who has been accepted at Gwynedd Mercy University is expected to continually progress to complete a degree. A student who does not attempt any credits for two consecutive semesters (fall and spring semesters only) will be considered withdrawn from the program of study and will need to submit a no-charge re-admission application if continuation of study is desired.

For Non-Matriculated Students

Non-Matriculated students may take as many as 12 credits of course work on a part-time basis at Gwynedd Mercy University. After completing these 12 credits, students must contact the admission office for advice about matriculation, that is, to work toward one of the degrees offered at the University. If the student does not intend, at any time, to work toward a degree, the admission requirement will be waived.

Students who intend to matriculate into an allied health, business administration or nursing program should apply as soon as possible but are required to do so once they have earned 9 credits.
