Mercy College: For Those with a Passion to Get Ahead

Mercy College - College Fair Guide

Mercy College students are on a personal mission to get the most out of life by getting the most out of their education. At Mercy, you can explore your passions and build the foundation for a successful career. The College offers liberal arts and professional programs in personalized and high-quality learning environments in Dobbs Ferry, Bronx, Manhattan and Yorktown Heights.

A Mentor From Day One

Almost every college has advisers, but Mercy takes it further and gives each student a personal mentor the moment they’re accepted to Mercy. While the average adviser meets with a student two times in a semester, these mentors will meet with a student 16 times.

You’re never alone when it comes to navigating financial aid, choosing the right major, understanding degree requirements, registering for classes and tracking your academic progress.

Learning Beyond the Classroom

You can’t just think it — you’ve got to do it. Programs at Mercy focus on giving students the real-world knowledge and skills they need.

The faculty share their decades of career experience with students, and create networking opportunities that bring them into the professional fold. Mercy’s Career and Professional Development department works with students to build their résumés and hone interview skills so they can land that dream job or internship.

On campus, state-of-the-art facilities give students access to the equipment and settings they’ll be in while on the job. You’ll find Mercy students gaining hands-on experience:

  • training as health professionals in the College’s Clinical Simulation and Learning Labs

  • mixing audio in the Music Production and Recording Arts Studio

  • swapping stocks in the School of Business Trading Room

  • working with real clients in the Business Incubation Center.

Mercy’s Culture

Mercy’s campuses are home to over 50 student clubs and activities — and students can easily start their own. The College has 16 honor societies and the award-winning student newspaper, The Impact.

Classes are small at Mercy, with 92 percent of undergraduate classes having fewer than 30 students and 50 percent having fewer than 20 students.

Mercy’s 10 NCAA Division II athletics teams compete on the College’s new athletic turf and in Victory Gym. They train in a 5,000-square-foot state-of-the-art fitness center.


A college education should be accessible to anyone driven enough to earn it. Mercy College’s costs are, on average, about 50 percent less than other private colleges in the area.

Mercy’s financial aid experts are there to guide you every step of the way. Mercy offers generous financial aid packages, including New York State and federal grants, scholarships or a work-study program to help you with your education costs.
