MercerOnline includes fully-online, hybrid,

Fully-online based classes
Fully-online classes are offered entirely online, although sometimes you will be asked to take exams in the Testing Center or another approved educational site. Please refer to the class syllabus for information concerning on-campus proctored exams for the individual courses.
Note: If you are an out-of-state student taking an online class and the class requires a proctored exam, you will be responsible for talking with the faculty member and arranging a proctored agreement with another educational institution or public library.
Hybrid classes consist of both face-to-face and online lessons. With a hybrid class, students meet on campus half the time, and complete the other portion online.
A majority of faculty will use the Blackboard learning management system to supplement the traditional face-to-face classroom by posting syllabi, handouts and other important information online.
