You want Mount Mercy. And the good news is, we want you.
The Adult Accelerated program is designed to fit your busy life. The key is our block scheduling format. Rather than dividing the academic year into two semesters, we offer classes all year long in 5- and 10-week blocks. Each block consists of one weekly class that meets on weeknights or Saturdays.
New blocks start every five weeks. Block scheduling means flexibility. You can start a new course whenever you’re ready, instead of waiting for a new semester to start. This also allows you to take brief breaks if your work or other responsibilities demand your attention. Since new classes start so often, you won’t fall behind.

College-level credits earned at regionally accredited institutions are evaluated and may be accepted as credit toward graduation from Mount Mercy. Because some majors require a minimum grade point average, course work is evaluated according to departmental requirements.
If you have questions about your credit, feel free to send us an email or call 319-861-2392.
In an Adult Accelerated class, your business professor is also the VP of marketing at a local Fortune 1000 company. Your classmates are market research directors, sales managers and human resources executives. The connections you make in the classroom transfer directly into the community, helping you build a robust professional network that includes hundreds of Adult Accelerated Alumni employed with Eastern Iowa businesses.
There is a flat rate for accelerated classes (see current tuition rate) and there are no hidden fees or extra charges other than books. In addition, all adult students are eligible for financial aid in the form of grants and loans. Since many of our students receive reimbursement checks from their workplace, we give you 45 days after your course ends to settle the bill.
