Come check us out!
Misericordia makes transitioning into a new college as stress-free as possible to make it easier for you to call us “home”. Get the fresh start that you have been looking for at an institution that truly understands your needs.
We know that each transfer student is coming from a unique background and experience; as such, we provide a support system to ensure that the transition is seamless. We work closely with each student to understand all individual needs and personal goals. Moreover, we work hard to bridge the gap for each student so that transfer students can pick-up where they left-off without missing a beat.
A specialized counselor who works exclusively with transfer students will assist with everything from the application and admissions process to the financial aid and course registration process, answering any questions and keeping students informed along the way. This individual will also offer expert guidance on the various program options and acceptance criteria, and provide an informal evaluation of transcripts. Quite simply, it is our objective to give each student a positive experience and the opportunity for success.
