Fall Preview Day

Join us for a day of information sessions, campus tours and networking with current students and faculty at Fall Preview Day - Saturday, September 21, 2019. 

Visit the Fall Preview Day page for the tentative agenda and additional details.

Nursing Success! Seminar

Underrepresented students (African American, Hispanic/Latino, and male) are invited to participate in a 3-day program, Nursing Success! Seminar

BSN Information Sessions

BSN information sessions are held on a regular basis throughout the year. Each information session will cover the program curriculum and admission requirements, and also provide prospective students with the opportunity to learn more about the program from faculty and students. Campus tours are generally offered approximately 45 minutes prior to the start of the information session. 

New: Bring your transcripts to the information session!

Prospective students now have another option to have their transcripts reviewed. Come to an information session and bring a copy of your unofficial transcripts with you. Leave them with the admissions counselor and they will review your transcripts and provide you with a complete evaluation within two weeks. Avoid making an extra trip to campus and get your transcripts evaluated much faster than waiting for an appointment!

Each year, Samuel Merritt University makes hundreds of visits to colleges and universities throughout the Bay Area, California and the country. Chances are we're going to be at a school near you soon. Check out the event calendar to see where we're going to be next. 

Counseling Appointments

Appointments are available weekdays, during regular business hours for prospective students who have already attended an information session. These appointments are usually 45-60 minutes in length and the main purpose is to review your transcripts for prerequisites. Please bring unofficial or official transcripts with you to the appointment. Please call (510) 879-9200 to schedule your counseling appointment.

Drop-In Counseling (Oakland only) 

If you have a quick question or two, drop-in counseling may be perfect for your busy schedule. No appointment is needed. Drop-in counseling is available on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. These are brief visits designed to provide you with some quick information. Drop-in counseling is not available during the weeks of Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Year's.

Virtual Drop-Ins for Transfer Students

Prospective students are welcome to virtually “drop in” and ask quick, general questions of an Admission Counselor.  This is entirely online. Virtual drop-ins are held every Monday from 12 to 1 p.m.
