International Transfers
International transfer applicants must submit official transcripts for university-level work completed or attempted outside the United States, as well as official transcripts for courses taken in the United States. All transcripts from post-secondary institutions outside of the United States must have a course-by-course evaluation completed by an approved agency. Approved agencies are members of the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES) or from the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (AACRAO). Mercer will perform an evaluation based on the course-by-course evaluation report received directly from one of the approved agencies and in accordance with the same guidelines as those for nationally-accredited institutions. Note: Students will not be awarded English credit from international institutions.
Students requiring NCAA Eligibility Center approval, will be required to submit official transcripts in their native language in addition to official transcripts in English.
Deposits and Insurance
Accepted international students must pay the appropriate fees, which include a $500 enrollment deposit and orientation fee drawn on a U.S. bank or U.S. dollar account. Once enrolled, all F-1 and J-1 students must participate in the University Accident and Sickness Insurance Program, the cost of which is included in tuition fees. Coverage is for a 12-month period and is available for spouses and dependents of students. Exceptions can be made only if the student can present evidence of adequate, existing coverage.
