Submit all final transcripts as soon as possible.
If you are currently enrolled in any coursework or if you have completed any coursework since submitting your application, please have all final copies of these transcripts sent to Mercer. Your transcripts help determine your Mercer class schedule and federal financial aid.

If you have not done so already, complete your FAFSA to be considered for additional financial assistance. Mercer’s federal school code is 001580. Submit your application at studentaid.ed.gov.
*Please note: International students are not eligible for federal financial aid.

Plan your payment if you are not using financial aid.
Bills will be posted electronically to your MyMercer account approximately 30 days before the start of the session. Check your Mercer email for notifications. Your account balance is due the first day of class. Information about payment plan options is available through the Office of the Bursar.
Review the student health insurance and waiver process.
Mercer University requires students enrolled in three or more hours on the Macon, Atlanta, Savannah, and Columbus campuses to provide proof of health insurance coverage each semester. If you already have eligible coverage under another policy you may waive the university-provided health insurance premium by completing the health insurance waiver process by the drop/add deadline. Student insurance option is waived for fully online students.
Complete your Immunization Form.
All students who are completing coursework at one of Mercer’s locations must submit an Immunization Form. Return your completed Immunization Form to Student Health Services. Fully online students are exempt from immunization requirements.
Order textbooks and materials.
After meeting with your academic advisor, you should have your course schedule for the upcoming session. In preparation for your classes, check with the Mercer bookstore to order the textbooks and supplemental resources you will need. Bookstore locations are available in Atlanta and Macon, or you can order textbooks online at ShopMercerBears.com.
