Misericordia University Graduate Admissions

Once Misericordia receives a CASPA verified application, it is screened by the graduate admission officer to ensure that the minimum GPA requirements have been met, the prerequisite coursework has either been completed or is listed as in progress or to be completed by the deadline, the minimum numbers of direct patient contact hours have been accrued, personal statement and letters of reference are included, and successful completion of the TOEFL if required.

Accepted applicants must send any official transcripts that contain courses and or degrees not previously verified on the CASPA application directly to the Assistant Director of Graduate Admissions (see contact information below).  All transcripts must be received prior to matriculation.
