    International students are warmly welcomed at Mercer County Community College and encouraged to apply. Over 150 international students on F-1 visa status study at Mercer every semester in a wide range of majors, adding rich dimension to our community by contributing both academic talent and cultural diversity.

    The presence and contributions of international students at Mercer are an important part of building a multicultural community and developing an academic environment that reflects diverse perspectives.

    Mercer is authorized to issue the Form I-20. Students are admitted before the beginning of each semester, year round. Most of our international students transfer to four-year colleges and universities throughout the United States after completing their studies in Mercer Degree programs, Certificate programs, and English Language Training.

    All students are required to demonstrate proficiency in English to enroll in college-level courses. Until college readiness is demonstrated in English, the I-20 will reflect the Language Training level of education.
