About Misericordia University

Misericordia University, a small, Catholic school in Dallas, Pennsylvania, truly embodies the Catholic mission of service and support by offering traditional as well as alternative degree programs for individuals of all backgrounds.

Majors at Misericordia include Business, various concentrations in fine arts, liberal arts and professional healthcare, and service-oriented fields like Nursing, Occupational Therapy and Social Work.

Many of Misericordia’s approximately 2,000 students come directly from high school to earn a bachelor’s degree.

However, Misericordia also provides degree programs for those from less conventional backgrounds. Its program for single mothers, for example, allows those in this situation to earn a bachelor’s degree on a schedule that’s workable for them, and also grants financial aid and other types of support.

There is also the Expressway program, another flexible alternative to a bachelor’s degree designed exclusively for working adults.

Additional alternative options may be found in Misericordia’s graduate program offerings and through the Division of Continuing and Adult Education.

Since Misericordia is a small college, students may benefit from personalized services that provide counseling, career coaching, academic advising and other means of support.

There are also more than 40 student clubs and a campus ministry program that provide opportunities to socialize with fellow students while also pursuing an outside interest.

A fairly competitive school, Misericordia usually admits traditional undergraduate freshmen who are in the top quarter of their high school class. However, standards for other applicants may differ depending on whether one is applying as a transfer, alternative or graduate student.

Financial aid is awarded through various sources to eligible students.
