Mercyhurst University

Students enrolled in the Oasis Program can choose a one or two year option as well as to live on campus or commute while they participate in coursework alongside peers with similar vocational interest at Mercyhurst University’s North East campus. Currently, the program offers four different proficiency-based certificate areas: Culinary Arts, Hospitality Management, Business Administration and Early Childhood Education. Students are supported by program staff, peer mentors, and a wide variety of academic success offering on the inclusive campus. Following an academic year of courses, students complete an internship in their area of study. The top three (3) priority areas for this program are employment, self-determination, and college course access.
