Academic Resources

Our grads all had determination. Now they have degrees.

Program Flexibility

Mercer offers classes at times that are convenient for your busy schedule. And because we know our working adult students may be balancing a job and child care and public service and more, we're right beside you knocking down obstacles and excuses so that you can reach the bold goals you've set for yourself.

Experienced Professors

The Mercer faculty teaching your classes are focused on student growth and success. They will inspire and challenge you to think differently as you develop new skills and knowledge that you can immediately apply at work or home. Your professors are also committed to being available to you when you need them outside of class - including when you're taking classes online.

Career Support

Our Center for Career and Professional Development offers group workshops, one-on-one appointments, and additional resources to assist you with résumé writing, interview skills, job search, networking, professional etiquette, negotiation, and more. And our online career recruitment tool connects students and alumni with potential employers.

Transferring Credits

Your prior college credits count - and Mercer has made the process of transferring credits as seamless as possible. We also partner with a growing number of regionally accredited institutions throughout Georgia to create "Mercer Next" pathways for students who have earned an associate degree.

I chose Mercer because of the connection to the community at large through alumni, stakeholders, and the aspect of global citizenry in its mission. Mercer’s evening programs provide relevant coursework, professional staff, small class sizes, and a genuine interest in the growth of the student.
