You’ve been accepted and made your deposit – now what? Here’s everything you need to do to be ready for fall.
If you haven’t already applied for financial aid, you should do so immediately. The first step is to complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). The FAFSA will help our financial aid office determine if you’re eligible for federal or state financial aid.*
*Not planning to submit a FAFSA? Please let us know!
To secure your spot in our residence halls, you will need to submit your housing application and deposit. The earlier the application and deposit are submitted, the more likely that preferences can be met. Need help? Contact email@example.com. Learn more about living on campus.
After you submitted your acceptance deposit, you were 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. Need help? Contact IT@gmercyu.edu.
Deadline: August 1, 2022
To ensure that you are prepared to succeed in college-level courses, you will need to take the English and mathematics placement assessments before registering for your first semester at GMercyU. You can access them on the Placement Assessments webpage. If you have any questions or need assistance, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once you have completed your placement assessments, you will be contacted by a faculty advisor about registering for your first semester's courses.
*Placement Assessments are not required of students admitted to the Integrated Studies program. Transfer students do not need to take the placement assessments unless they have not successfully completed both a college-level English and math course.
Please be sure to review and accept your financial aid offer via the Student Self-Service Portal. Log into the portal with the username and password provided to you via email and then click on “Financial Aid” to access your aid, forms, and other important information. Need help or have questions? Email email@example.com.
Our Financial Aid and Registrar Offices are teaming up to go over next steps and tell you what you need to know to be "start ready" before your semester begins. You need to have completed your placement assessments before registering. In addition to your class schedule you will pick up your ID and parking permit.
New Student Orientation for First-Year Students will run from Friday, August 26 - Sunday, August 28. Transfer students may participate in any or all of the events during NSO, but we have created a special half-day Transfer Student Orientation on Wednesday, August 17, 2022, to address Transfer-specific needs. All New Student Orientation programs will be held in-person. Learn more about Orientation!

All new and transfer students must complete the appropriate health form and receive certain required immunizations before moving in or starting classes. If you have any questions about your health form, please contact Donna Ferguson email@example.com.
In addition, all full-time 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.
If you have any questions about the health insurance waiver form, please contact the Campbell Solution Center at firstname.lastname@example.org.
*You will need to know your date of birth and student ID number.* This number can be found on your billing invoice. Do not use the dash when entering your ID number.
