High School Students
For direct from high school students the priority application deadline for majors with competitive admission with clinical seats is January 15 for Fall and September 15 for Spring. Mercy College applications are accepted up to two weeks prior to the start of the fall semester for all majors, although applications submitted after the priority deadline, may result in students who have met program requirements to be placed on waitlists for majors with clinical seats. 

Official high school transcripts showing the grade point average are required for college admission, and should be mailed to Mercy College, ATTN: Admissions, 2221 Madison Avenue, Toledo, OH 43604. Prospective students should request the official transcript from the high school guidance counselor and it must be mailed to Mercy College by the high school guidance office. Students must submit results of the SAT or ACT to be considered for admission to some programs. If more than one set of scores is submitted, the higher score(s) are used.
