D. TRANSFER ADMISSION
Last Updated: October 29, 2003
Mercer University has several distinct programs for undergraduate degree-seeking students: 1. Our "traditional" program is offered on our main campus in Macon, Georgia; it is a daytime program geared toward traditional age, first-time college students. 2. Mercer offers an evening and weekend continuing education program geared toward adults held at off-campus centers around the state of Georgia. 3. Our branch campus in Atlanta offers upper division undergraduate courses leading to a BBA in business. 4. Our Georgia Baptist College of Nursing offers undergraduate nursing degrees on the Atlanta Campus. Admission requirements and policies vary by program. The responses in this section are based on our dominate undergraduate program, the Macon campus traditional program.
