Degree: Secondary Education
Graduation Year: 2015

My experience so far has been great. The curriculum is very challenging and is very relevant to my area of study. It has given me a new outlook at how a child is being educated and has showed me ways/avenue to seek continued assistance for my students. The professors are very helpful and are always available and willing to go the extra mile to answer my questions and offer assistance. I am not a teacher yet, as I am changing my career path, but I am confident that with the assistance I get from Mercy, I will be able to withstand any challenges I may face as a new teacher. To be completely honest, I have not had a bad experience with Mercy so far, therefore I am unable to make any comments in that respect.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2015

My experience has been overall good at Mercy College. I completed my undergrad there and it was a smooth transition into Grad school. I believe the pros of my graduate program are that the school has great, flexible, and well explained classes. I don't have many cons but one con I do have is that I believe some of the professors can be a little more involved when you need hep with the instruction. I reached out to one professor several times and never received a response. Overall I like Mercy College and what it has to offer for me.

The faculty are very supportive and possess current and pertinent knowledge in the education field. Each class solidified the necessary information needed to operate as an educator, which caused me to feel highly satisfied with my decision to attend Mercy College.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

I will be starting Mercy College this coming September. But based on several visits, meetings with advisors, and faculty, I have found Mercy College to be accommodating and very helpful through the process of getting ready to return to school. For a non-traditional student like myself, this has eased the stress of preparation.

Degree: Early Childhood Education
Graduation Year: 2014

I love that my campus is easily accessible and the quality of educators that are teaching the courses. The biggest issue I have with Mercy College is the lack of proper deans of education on the Manhattan campus. There are times that I have questions but there is no one that I can meet with face to face.

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2016

This is an extremely competitive program to get into and a difficult program to stay in. Since starting in 2012 my class has lost 4 people due to financial, family or grades. This program is very challenging and not for someone who isn't sure they want to be a PT. Faculty tend to be sympathetic but they really can't help the heavy workload and if a student falls behind, there isn't much they can do to help.

Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2015

My graduate program of English Literature at Mercy is extremely competitive. Although I am an online student, I feel as though I am always in the know with the happenings of campus life. My professors are all rigorous and fair, who challenge me to be the best. I have been enjoying my studies thus far.

Great school, wish there was a better financial aid packet, but when I compare other programs to it those programs seem lackluster in some areas.
