2. Provide Official Transcripts

Provide official transcripts from all schools that you previously attended. If you have earned an associate’s or bachelor’s degree, you do not need to submit your high school transcript. 

To qualify as official transcripts, they must be received directly from the issuing institution or in a sealed envelope directly from the issuing institution which displays the appropriate seal and signature of the institution. Mount Mercy cannot accept any transcripts if the seal on the envelope has been broken or tampered with. 

Official transcripts should be submitted to:

3. Get ready for the next steps

Once all documents have been received and you're accepted to the program, we'll help you schedule an appointment with your personal academic advisor. Together you'll discuss your plans, review any of your transfer coursework, and decide upon your schedule of classes.
