About Mercy College

Mercy College is committed to providing motivated students the opportunity to transform their lives through higher education by offering liberal arts and professional programs in personalized and high quality learning environments, thus preparing students to embark on rewarding careers, to continue learning throughout their lives and to act ethically and responsibly in a changing world.

Mercy is known for its high-quality education, the personalized experience it provides to students, its talented faculty, the beauty of its setting and closeness to New York City, and its affordability.
You will also know Mercy by the accomplished professionals you meet who have graduated from here—women and men who are leaders in their chosen professions, be it education, business, the arts, professional sports or civic life, and who are committed to making a difference.

Mercy College is a four-year private institution founded by the Sisters of Mercy as a junior college in 1950 and it became a four-year college in 1961.

Mercy challenges each of its undergraduate and graduate students to exceed their personal and intellectual expectations. Mercy's graduates demonstrate success and confidence across professional and vocational spectrums, and the impact they have in their communities or around the globe is testament to an empowering educational experience. 

Mercy’s vibrant academic community places a high value on learning outside of the classroom with real-world experiences. This approach to scholarship encourages students to apply what they learn in the classroom with life after graduation. Mercy’s world-renowned faculty work closely with students on these projects.

Mercy is committed to connecting students with the world. The College has a rich tradition of community service through the “Mercy Gives Back” initiative, which encourages students to participate in, and lead, service-learning opportunities. This is a reflection of Mercy’s history and the values contained in the Mercy College seal (Inserviendo Consumere, consumed in service). On-campus events and international travel experiences help students discover and appreciate cultures far from home. Our graduates are engaged citizens.
