Use Merit to build your resume

Merit makes it easy to share your achievements with friends, family and potential employers. Students are notified when the College adds an achievement to their page. These achievement announcements can be shared on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and by email. Achievements are also sent by Palmer to the student’s local newspaper for publication.

Additionally, potential employers, friends or family can follow a student’s Merit page to receive an email when an achievement notification is made on a student’s page.

A student’s Merit page is unavailable to the College for updates after graduation, but the page remains available to the student.

Have more questions about your Merit page? Palmer College’s Merit Page program is coordinated by Palmer’s Marketing & Communication department. Contact Chris Beaudry at 563-884-5120 or
