What Students Are Saying

3.01 Average Rating
I would recommend prospective students to register for their classes as soon as possible, because they fill up very fast since it is such a small school with limited classes and small class sizes. Also, look into their accelerated programs, such as the Physician's Assistant 5-year program, because UDM offers some great programs that can actually ensure your spot in a graduate program while still in undergraduate school.
Allison from Shelby Township, MI
Prospective students should apply for outside scholarships because, even though the university is very generous, it is expensive. Also, make sure to plan a tour around campus in the spring to see the true beauty of the campus.
Amber from Sterling Heights, MI
Being active in class and participate. Professors here love seeing students who actually get involved, they will help you with whatever whenever you need.

Concerning financial aid, I would suggest that you have a really great transcript coming out of high school, seeing as U of D-Mercy gives out scholarships based on your cumulative GPA. Also, if there is anything you do, ALWAYS remain positive because there will come times when you seem overwhelmed. But I've learned from personal experience that everything is going to be alright. Always strive for greatness and excellence! You will only go as far as you, yourself are willing to go. Finally, ALWAYS BELIEVE IN YOURSELF because whether you believe it or not, YOU CAN DO IT!
Kevin from Highland Park, MI
The Nursing program is intense, but if you stay focused and are driven you will go far, the professors are your friends, go to them with all questions and concerns. Class participation is key and the professors love to see you get into what they are teaching. The more you interact in class the better they know you and the more willing they are to help you. Don't be afraid to ask for help they want to see you succeed they don't want to see you struggle.
