Distance Learning students register and drop/add courses through the MyMercer Student Portal. The drop/add period generally extends only through the first week of classes.
The exact dates for the drop/add period are available in academic calendars on the Registrar's Website. Schedule changes are approved by an advisor. Distance learning students who wish to visit campus can also register in person with their advisor or at one of the scheduled on-site registration sessions.
A student may withdraw from a class up until the published deadline for course withdrawal each semester by filing a withdrawal form with the Registrar. A student who withdraws from a class will receive a "W" on his/her transcript. A student who withdraws after the deadline will receive an "F" for the class.Financial aid can be reduced upon withdrawal from a course.Distance education students are encouraged to contact the financial aid office before officially withdrawing from a course.
Non-attendance or ceasing to attend a course (s) does not constitute an official schedule change, course withdrawal, or term withdrawal.Failure to withdraw officially will result in academic and financial penalties. Distance education students may complete the course withdrawal form online.
Students may view their grades at the end of each semester by logging into MyMercer with their secure login. Copies of official transcripts can be ordered in writing through the Office of the Registrar.
