What Are Dual Admission Agreements?

Dual admission agreements are specialized transfer agreements that guarantee admission to specific four-year colleges and universities. While each agreement has slightly different requirements, all agreements require that a student must officially sign up for the agreement and complete a degree program at Mercer.

Dual Admissions Programs provide an opportunity for MCCC students to complete a two-year degree at Mercer and also be guaranteed admissions to a four-year college. Students must follow a specific course of study and graduate from an eligible program of study at MCCC with the required cumulative grade point average (GPA).

Dual Admission Programs have very specific requirements and are not meant for every student. They are generally designed for students who are just beginning their college work and have selected one major and one specific college that they plan to attend. Students who do not meet the dual admission eligibility requirements or who are unsure of their major or choice of four-year college can always continue at MCCC and transfer through the traditional transfer.
