Accepted Students

Congratulations on your acceptance to Mercer Law School. We would like to welcome you to Mercer Law and the Mercer Law family. As a student who has been accepted you have become part of a distinguished legacy of lawyers, judges, professionals, and scholars. We are proud that you have chosen Mercer for your legal education and we are looking forward to meeting you and getting to know you in the near future.

The Next Steps

The following are the next steps you will need to take to make your transition to Mercer Law as smooth and seamless as possible. Again, welcome to Mercer Law and let us know if you have any questions.

  • Seat Deposit - As your acceptance letter indicated, you are required to pay a seat deposit to reserve your place in the first year class. Failure to meet your required deadlines will result in the forfeiture of your seat in the first year class. Although your deposit is non-refundable, it will be applied in full against your initial tuition payment.
  • Reception for Admitted Students - A reception for admitted students  will be held from 6:00-7:00 p.m. on Friday evening, March 20, 2015, at The Brickyard (Riverside at 6000 Wesleyan Drive North, Macon, GA. 31210). Please RSVP to admissions@law.mercer.edu  or call (478) 301-2605. 
  • Admitted Student Day  - Saturday, March 21, 2015 9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
  • Financial Aid/Scholarships - Please follow the link for financial aid and scholarship information.
  • Housing - Our quiet, residential location provides plenty of apartments and houses within walking/biking distance or a 10-15 minute drive.
  •  Immunization- All Mercer Law students (incoming and transfer) are required to complete and submit this form to the Student Health Services Office on main campus before entering school. Please refer to the immunization policy for more information. 
  • Official Final Transcript - You must have your final academic undergraduate transcript, which reflects the date you graduated, mailed to us from the Registrar’s Office of your undergraduate school. The transcript which was previously provided to Law Services will NOT meet this requirement. This information must be received by us before classes begin.
  • Orientation - Orientation is mandatory for all incoming and transfer students.
  • Parking - Students park in the upper student parking lots. The lower lot is reserved for faculty, staff, and visitors.
  •  Professionalism Orientation for First-Year Students- This is a highly unique program with extensive focus on ethics, professionalism, and what to expect while living the life of a lawyer.
  • Registrar’s Office - You will find information regarding academic calendars, courses offered, exam schedules, and student surveys.
  • Student Handbook - The printable document will outline policies regarding degree requirements, grading policy, financial information, exam policy, students with disabilities, and other important policies and procedures.
  • Student Health Insurance - Mercer requires all students to have health insurance coverage. In order to enforce this policy, all students will be automatically enrolled and charged for health insurance each semester. You will be provided the opportunity to waive the student insurance coverage and have the charge removed from your Mercer account if you provide satisfactory evidence that you have primary health insurance coverage.
  • Visit - Please plan to visit Mercer Law School at your convenience. We provide a very collegial and supportive environment and want to share that with you.
