Misericordia University has announced that it will begin test-optional admission review for the first-year class entering in Fall 2021 in all academic programs. Students who have taken the SAT or ACT are encouraged, but not required, to submit their scores.  Learn more in this news release.

The minimum criteria for admission into the Bachelor of Science in Health Science: Exercise Science Specialization program as a freshman student are:

  • Class rank in the top half of the high school graduating class and/or a cumulative 2.5 grade point average
  • Minimum SAT requirement of 850 (combined Math and Critical Reading) if taken prior to March 5, 2016, or a combined 930 if taken after March 5, 2016. In lieu of the SAT, the ACT results may be presented with a minimum required composite score of 18.

For transfer applicants, a minimum 2.0 overall GPA is required, and 15 credits are preferred (however, those with less than 15 credits are encouraged to apply and will be considered on a case-by-case basis).

Please note the above listed requirements are general, and that each application is looked at thoroughly, taking into account individual grades, academic rigor, and other factors.
