Misericordia University has announced that it will continue test-blind admission review for the first-year class entering in Fall 2023 and Fall 2024 in all academic programs. Students who have taken the SAT or ACT are not required to submit their scores. Test scores will not be used in determining admission or academic scholarship awards.
The criteria for admission into the Social Work program follows that of the University—a minimum high school grade point average of 2.5 and a minimum SAT requirement of 850 (combined Math and Critical Reading) if taken prior to March 5, 2016; if taken after March 5, 2016, a minimum combined score of 930 is required. In lieu of the SAT, the ACT results may be presented with a minimum required composite score of 18. However, during the second year or at the beginning of the third year, students must formally apply to the Social Work Program. Applications should be reviewed by the student with the advisor before it is submitted to the program chair.
Successful transfer applicants will typically hold a minimum collegiate grade point average of 2.0, having completed at least 15 college credits, and have a proven record of success in high school or collegiate science courses. Transfer students must also submit a formal application.
