Enrollment Division Update

Like so much this year, the holidays are different. Despite the differences, I hope each of you all enjoyed the Thanksgiving holiday and long weekend.

The Enrollment team’s work with Ruffalo Noel Levitz is actively underway. The last scheduled Healthcare Worker Wednesday of the year is December 2. Indications are positive for the number of new students for Spring 2021 Semester. The enrollment goal is to enroll 160 new students. A summary is above. Meeting our enrollment goals requires all of us to work together. A crucial component to meeting our enrollment goals including credit hours is the retention of our current students. This is something everyone has a part in.

As the holidays approach and the craziness of 2020 continues, the Enrollment Division wishes you all a healthy and happy holiday season. Please stay safe and well.

Giving Tuesday

Giving tuesday

On Giving Tuesday, December 1, 2020 we ask you to help support Mercy College students through a contribution to the Mercy College Student Emergency Fund.

If $2500 is donated on December 1, an anonymous donor will provide a $2500 matching gift, further supporting our students.

Donations can be made at
Select Apply my donation to: Student Emergency Fund.

Giving Tuesday is a global generosity movement unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world. This year, Mercy College of Ohio is raising funds for the Student Emergency Fund, a fund that assists students with unforeseen financial emergencies which would prevent them from continuing their education at Mercy College. The fund is sustained by contributions from faculty, staff, students, alumni, and friends of the College. The number of students who can be served by the Student Emergency Fund is determined by the availability of funds.
