Next Steps for Accepted Students

You did it. You’re in! We are so excited to welcome you to the GMercyU community. But we’re even more excited to see what happens next. Once you confirm your acceptance, that’s when the fun really starts…

Did you miss Accepted Students Day? No worries! You can find all of the information you need to know below.


Step 1: Make your deposit

All we need to confirm your spot in the incoming class is your tuition deposit.

Fall 2017 applicants: A $125 tuition deposit ($500 for weekend nursing program) is due May 1
Spring 2017 applicants: Your deposit is due within three weeks of your acceptance. 

If you are interested in on-campus housing, you must submit an additional $250 housing deposit.

Please mail your deposit(s) to:

Office of Admissions
Gwynedd Mercy University
1325 Sumneytown Pike
P.O. Box 901
Gwynedd Valley, PA 19437

Make your check out to Gwynedd Mercy University.

Step 2: Confirm financial aid and housing

Financial aid

If you haven’t already applied for financial aid, you should do so immediately. The first step is to complete the FAFSA. (Our school code is 003270.)

Find out more about the financial aid process


Housing assignments are made based on many factors including but not limited to: class year, gender, lifestyle preferences, roommate requests, space availability, and the date by which you send in your housing deposit and complete your housing application. Learn more about living on campus.

As we cannot guarantee on-campus housing, the earlier the application and deposit is submitted, the more likely that preferences can be met.  While we have a rolling housing application process, the preferred deadline to receive the housing application and deposit is May 1. 

Step 3: Confirm your health information

All new and transfer students must complete the appropriate health form and receive certain required immunizations before moving in or starting classes.  

In addition, all students must have health insurance coverage, whether it is provided by the University or you have your own coverage.  If you have your own insurance, you need to complete a health insurance waiver form or you will be automatically enrolled in and billed for the University insurance plan.

Step 4: Get ready for life on campus

Be ready to go on the first day of classes:

Step 5: Get answers to your questions
