Frequently Asked Questions

Students should first explore their program of interest. Then, submit an application including the application fee (this can be done when completing the online application or by sending payment to Mercy College). Once the application and fee are submitted, students must request that all official transcripts (high school/GED and college) be sent to Mercy College. This can be done by contacting your respective institutions. All transcripts for Toledo, Youngstown, and online students should be sent to the following address: Mercy College of Ohio, ATTN: Admissions, 2221 Madison Avenue, Toledo, Ohio 43604.

No. Each program has different admission pre-requisites and co-requisites. View individual program information to learn more.

Programs begin different semesters. You can view individual program information to determine start times. Students interested in pre-major admission can begin any term.

Once a program is full to capacity, a wait list is started. In order for a student to be removed from the wait list, another student who has been offered a clinical space in the program must decline the space. If this happens, a student is removed from the wait list and placed in a clinical space. Students with questions about a potential wait list are encouraged to contact Admissions.

There is no guarantee of acceptance. Mercy College has a selective admissions policy.

The first step is to apply to Mercy College and go through the application process:  an application, $25.00 application fee, all official transcripts from high school and every college attended. When the application file is complete, it is reviewed for admission and the applicant will be notified by mail of the decision. If accepted, a student will attend an orientation and register for classes during that program.

Mercy College tuition is among the lowest in Ohio. To assist families with their financial planning, Mercy College offer’s the NET PRICE CALCULATOR to help estimate federal and state financial eligibility.
