Accelerated Format – Courses are offered 1 night per week or 1 Saturday morning per week for 10 week block or 2 nights a week or 8 hours on Saturday for a 5 week block.  This innovative format allows you to focus on 1 class at a time instead of juggling coursework of 2, 3, or even 4 classes typical of a traditional college course format.

Evening & Weekend Class Schedule - Monday through Friday nights from 5:30 PM to 9:30 PM or Saturday mornings from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM.  These class times will allow students to maintain a job, family, and still pursue their degree.

Tuition – Tuition is currently $550 per credit hour.

Tuition Reimbursement – Mount Mercy University accepts tuition reimbursement from employees and employers who have that benefit available to them.  We allow students that receive tuition reimbursement up to 45 days after the completion of the course to pay the course tuition.
