Transferrable Credits

Mercyhurst is a fully accredited university with nationally recognized programs of study. Any university credits students earn during high school will count toward a Mercyhurst degree, and most credits will transfer to other accredited U.S. colleges and universities. The transferability of your credits makes Dual Enrollment an excellent option to complete introductory-level or prerequisite courses before you officially start college.

Affordable Tuition

Mercyhurst offers a highly discounted tuition rate for qualified high school students: $100 per credit for most courses. Additional fees may apply for some students in some courses.
