Individualized Approach

Merrimack College takes an individualized approach to creating a first-semester schedule that both meets your academic needs and is manageable as you transition to college life.

Schedules for students entering Merrimack in the spring will be created by the Academic Success Center in conjunction with your major department. The center will reach out to you to discuss your course options and academic plans. 

Please direct questions to Laura Priest at 978-837-5278, or email the Academic Success Center at

Placement Tests 

Students must complete their math and foreign-language placement tests prior to their schedules being created. Both tests are available on Blackboard. Questions? Contact us at 978-837-5278 or

Reviewing Your Schedule

You will be notified when your schedule is complete and ready for review. You will receive instructions on how to access your schedule through MyMack. Though it is unlikely that you will need to make any adjustments, you may contact the Academic Success Center at any time to discuss your schedule. 

The Academic Success Center staff will be available to answer any questions you may have. Please feel free to contact us at any time. We are excited to welcome you to Merrimack!
