The Fall 2021 academic calendar begins on September 7, 2021. Mercer faculty understand that students may have differing levels of comfort for being in person during their classes. We have developed four different course options that allow students to select their preferred modality.
The offerings in the course catalog are fully in-person courses (described as “Lecture” in the course catalog); hybrid courses (listed as Hybrid Campus/Online); fully online with scheduled class meeting times (listed as West Windsor Campus or James Kerney Campus Mercer Online Remote); and fully online with no class meetings (listed as Mercer Online Web Based Instruction). You can select the courses that are right for you, and you can also mix and match your course types.
Course registration is underway. Register as soon as possible to make sure you have the broadest course selection and scheduling that is convenient for you.
Since you have so many options for building your course schedule, please consider working with your student success coach to build the course schedule that’s right for you. As you look through the course catalog, consider the following elements and expectations of each course type:
Note: Course modalities may be adjusted if the health situation in the state warrants it. All classes will be prepared to convert to a fully online modality if necessary.
Student support services include mentoring, counseling, technology support, and grant funding to help you build and maintain an educational environment that allows you to thrive. If you need assistance, we are here for you.
Student Success coaches and advisors are available virtually throughout the summer as we prepare for the fall semester. These staff members are your guide to understanding the requirements of your degree program and registering for appropriate courses. They can meet with you virtually as you plan your fall course schedule. Learn more on the Student Success website.
Students who require accommodations in the learning environment can register with the Center for Inclusion, Transition, and Accessibility to receive these services. To connect with this office, please visit the Center for Inclusion, Transition, and Accessibility’s website.
