Evening & Weekend Class Schedule — Courses are offered Monday through Thursday nights from 5:30 PM to 9:30 PM or Saturday mornings from 8:30 AM to 12:30 PM. These class times allow you to maintain a job, family, and still pursue your degree.
Transfer Friendly — We accept up to 63 credit hours from a two-year college. For approved majors, we accept up to 75 credit hours with a two-year degree from an Iowa community college. Students with credits from a four-year institution may transfer up to 90 credit hours.
Community Connections — Mount Mercy has been a part of the community for more than 85 years, with alumni living and working in the Corridor area. Our strong partnerships with local businesses and health care organizations provide you with extensive networking opportunities.
Accelerated Format — Courses are offered one night per week or one Saturday morning per week for either a 5-week or 10-week session. This innovative format allows you to focus on one class at a time instead of juggling coursework of two, three or even four classes typical of a traditional college format.
Classroom Instruction — Interact with tenured faculty and business professionals in a face-to-face learning environment. The classroom allows for high-level discussions, bringing theory and application together while connecting to your professional experiences.
Small Class Sizes — Our average class size of 17 students allows you to more deeply engage in the topic with your fellow students and instructor.
