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 preferred by May 1. If you are accepted after May 1, please make your deposit within three weeks of your acceptance or as soon as possible.
Living on Campus: If you are interested in on-campus housing, you must submit an additional $250 housing deposit.
Spring 2018 applicants: Your deposit is due within three weeks of your acceptance.
Please mail your deposit(s) to:
Office of Admissions
Gwynedd Mercy University

P.O. Box 901
Gwynedd Valley, PA 19437
Make your check out to Gwynedd Mercy University.
Step 2: Confirm financial aid and housing
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.)
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:
- Visit campus and explore your future home
- Register for classes (email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information)
- You can view course schedules in Self Service
- Get your parking pass at the Campbell Solution Center
- Get your student ID card at the Campbell Solution Center
- Schedule a time to take your math and English placement assessment tests by contacting Stephanie Alderfer at 267-448-1347 or email@example.com. You can also schedule them online.
- Contact Student Accessibility Services if you think you will need learning accommodations once you arrive on campus
- International student? Be sure you’ve submitted all the required documents.

Step 5: Get your GMercyU email address
After you enroll in at least one class, you will be assigned a GMercyU email address. All important GMercyU messages will be sent to you through your GMercyU email address, so it's important that you get set up well before your first class.
Step 6: Get answers to your questions
Want to know how you'll be matched with your roommate? How about whether or not you can have a car on campus? Check out the answers to some of our most frequently asked questions about campus life.
