What’s New at Merrimack

Campus Is Open: We offer both in-person and virtual visit opportunities, and we’re always adding new options to our visit page. Sign up for an info session and campus tour or experience everything Merrimack has to offer at one of our Fall Open Houses (dates coming soon!)! 

Rolling Admission: In addition to our early decision and early action fall deadlines, we are implementing rolling admission to allow more time and flexibility in the application process. And don’t forget - there is no fee to apply!

Test Scores Not Required: Merrimack has been test-blind for almost 10 years and will continue to not require ACT/SAT test scores as part of our review process. Instead, we look closely at transcripts and GPA to evaluate academic performance, fit and preparedness. 

Pass/Fail Grades: Pass/fail grades and other such shifts in transcripts will be reviewed carefully and thoughtfully, with an understanding that each school’s response to COVID-19 has been different. We will also accept unofficial transcripts.
