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
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.)
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:
- Visit campus and explore your future home
- Register for classes (email email@example.com for more information)
- 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
