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.
