Freshman Admission Requirements - FAQs

Admission to the University of Detroit Mercy is selective. Each student who applies is given an individual evaluation. Factors considered in making admission decisions include, but are not limited to, the following:

Our admissions committee gives full consideration to all graduates of an accredited high school or recipients with acceptable scores on the General Education Development Test (GED).

Applicants with a "B" average or better with a competitive score on the ACT or SAT, will generally be admitted to programs in the College of Liberal Arts and Education, the College of Business Administration, the College of Health Professions, or the McAuley School of Nursing.

Applicants to the School of Architecture and the College of Engineering and Science will be expected to present a more competitive record, including ACT or SAT scores.

NOTE: As a U.S. Citizen or Permanent Resident, you apply as a Domestic Student. However, if you have coursework from another country (outside the U.S. or Canada), you must contact a recognized educational credential evaluation service based in the United Stated such as the World Education Services or the Educational Credential Evaluators. Order the evaluation stated below, and have the results sent to the University (see address below).
