Check It Off. Get It Done.

MackTasks is your customized list of to-do items that you need to complete before you start classes. In early April, MackTasks will be ready for new Fall 2021 students.

  • It lives on myMack - Merrimack’s online student portal.
  • Students have myMack and MackTasks. Parents and family members can see tasks and deadlines on this New Student website. 
  • The MackTasks list you see in your portal is personalized just for you, so what you see might be different from a friend’s list.
  • Due dates vary depending on the task with dates ranging between May and September for students starting in fall 2021.
  • You will see your personal deadlines for each item right on your MackTasks list.
