Students wearing we are one shirts. You can still apply and deposit to Merrimack for Fall 2021.

Many students we’ve heard from have asked for more time: more time to visit, more time to apply, more time to decide. So no matter how you’re feeling, we’re here for you because taking care of our students is just part of who we are.

As we prepare for in person classes, we continue to accept applications and deposits for this fall. No matter your circumstance, we encourage you to come visit campus or have a conversation with a member of the admission team.

If you need more information or simply need someone to talk through this process with, please email us at

Choosing Merrimack

Our doors are always open.

In an effort to support students who are deciding where to attend school in the fall, we have a series of deposit target dates that keep you on track with milestones throughout the summer, such as coming to orientation and getting your housing assignment. No matter when you deposit, we will honor your admission offer and financial aid offer.
