MercyPLUS recognizes students' educational and professional experiences. Your admission is determined by your status as either a first-time college student or a transfer student.
First-time college students have graduated from high school and have not earned nine or more credits for any coursework at a college or university after their high school graduation.
Students who meet the first-time college student criteria must:
- Have a high school cumulative grade point average of 2.25 or higher; or
- Have an ACT composite score of 18 or higher; or
- Have completed the High School Equivalency Test (HiSet) or General Education Development (GED) certificate
