The Division of Enrollment and Student Services (ESS) is responsible for guiding students through their university  experience. From inquiry to application to graduation, staff are committed to assisting students. We strive to support all student co-curricular needs, answer questions that arise about Samuel Merritt University, and support students to realize their careers as healthcare providers. The Division is comprised of the Office of Admission, Office of Financial Aid, Office of the Registrar, Office of Student Services, Office of Academic and Disability Support Services, Campus Service Center, and Student Health and Counseling Center.
