Undergraduate Admission

We build character, as well as intellect.
More than 60 years ago, the Order of St. Augustine founded Merrimack College to promote learning, charity, and community life. Today, our vibrant school embodies these values by providing students with countless opportunities to grow—intellectually, spiritually, and ethically. The result? Students who have the ethical foundation to address real-world challenges and the tools to achieve professional success.

We cultivate engaged learners.
Across all of our 90+ academic programs—in liberal arts, science and engineering, and business and education—we encourage our students to openly engage, debate, and exchange ideas, both with faculty and each other. Dynamic, active learning is promoted though interactive classes, low student-to-teacher ratios, and small group projects.

We believe that school is about more than academics.
Stretch your skills, develop new interests, and forge lasting friendships by taking part in one (or more) of Merrimack’s 60 student-led clubs and organizations. Whether you’re into performing arts, intramural sports, or giving back to the community, you’ll find plenty of opportunities to get involved. And because we’re located just minutes from Boston, you’ll have easy access to a diverse array of arts, music, sports, and recreational activities.
