Admission Requirements

Matriculation in any graduate program at Misericordia University requires at minimum a bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university. In addition, some graduate programs have program-specific admissions requirements, which are noted in the program section of the catalog. Applicants must file a formal request for admission along with three letters of recommendation and the results of either the Graduate Records Examination (GRE) or the Miller's Analogy Test (MAT) as required by specific programs. A complete application consists of the application form, three letters of reference, the application fee, official transcripts of previous academic work to be forwarded directly from the institution at which the credits were earned, and the results of either the GRE or MAT examination as appropriate. Students for whom English is a second language must demonstrate proficiency in written and spoken English. The application and all supporting material should be mailed to:
