Submit all final transcripts as soon as possible

If you are current enrolled in any coursework or if you have completed any coursework since submitting your application, please have all final copies of these transcripts sent to Mercer. Your transcripts help determine your Mercer class schedule and federal financial aid.

Submit your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)*

Complete your FAFSA as early as possible to be considered for every type of financial assistance available. Mercer’s federal school code is 001580. Submit your application at studentaid.ed.gov.

*Please note: Non-degree students are not eligible for federal financial aid loans; however, private alternative loans may be explored at banks or credit unions for financing coursework. Mercer also offers a monthly payment plan option. Get more information on payment plans and tuition rates through the Office of the Bursar.
