Freshmen students outside GMercyU's University Hall

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…

Step 1: Make your deposit

We hope you’re ready to join the GMercyU community. All we need to confirm your spot in the incoming class is your tuition deposit.

Fall 2015 applicants: A $125 tuition deposit ($500 for weekend nursing program) is due May 1
Spring 2016 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 deposits 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


You should have received an information packet about housing shortly after receiving your acceptance letter. (If not, let us know or download the Housing Application here.) Make sure you submit your housing application, residence hall contract, and quiet lifestyle agreement to us promptly. (Housing applications from Fall  applicants that are received before May 1 will get priority status.)

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:

New student events and orientation

Griffin Gateway Barbecue: July 17, 2015
New Student Orientation: August 27–30, 2015
