Mercy College

Mercy College

Mercy College is the dynamic, diverse New York City area college whose students are on a personal mission: to get the most out of life by getting the most out of their education. 
Founded in 1950, Mercy College is a private, not-for-profit higher education institution that offers over 90 undergraduate and graduate degree and certificate programs within five prestigious schools: Business, Education, Health and Natural Sciences, Liberal Arts and Social and Behavioral Sciences. 

Calling all strivers, seekers and dream chasers

Mercy College was founded on the belief that a college education should be accessible to anyone hungry enough to earn it. Today our costs are, on average, about 50 percent less than other private colleges in the area.
Mercy College offers a personalized learning experience including the College’s revolutionary Personalized Achievement Contract (PACT) Program. PACT is the first program of its kind and serves as a nationally recognized model for mentoring. From the moment students are accepted into Mercy College they are assigned a PACT Mentor who helps them navigate the twists and turns of their college experience.
Mercy challenges its faculty and staff to make higher education work for anyone striving for a better place in life. With four active campuses, the vibrancy of the College culture is sustained by a diverse student body from around the world. Mercy is home to 54 student clubs, including Mercy’s award- winning student paper, The Impact, 16 honor societies and 10 Division II athletic teams.
