Do you live in an authorized state?

What is Out of State Authorization?

In order to protect the student from fraudulent and unethical education programs, colleges and universities must adhere to consumer protection laws that pertain to higher education, which are unique to each state. These laws often include definitions of physical presence, which vary and can include advertising, recruiting, clinicals, practicums, and internships.

Mercy College cannot accept students from the below states.

Mercy College is actively seeking authorization or exception from many of the states, and due to physical presence triggers, state authorization varies with each online degree program. Below is a list of states we currently cannot accept students from, listed by program. Please note that this is not an exhaustive list, and it is subject to change.
