Student Handbook and Policies
The Mercer University Student Handbook, the School of Medicine Student Handbook and the Program Handbooks set forth the major policies and procedures affecting students. Because the University is a dynamic institution, changes are inevitable. This handbook will be revised as new policies and procedures are adopted. The latest edition posted on this website will supersede all former editions unless stated otherwise in the text.
A majority of student policies and resources can be found in the Mercer University Student Handbook and the University Catalog, which the Office of the Provost hosts. The School of Medicine has additional information and policies that pertain to specific student populations that can be found in the School of Medicine Student Handbook and the Program Handbooks. These resources, when taken as a whole, provide students with a basic understanding of the rights and responsibilities of Mercer students.
Students are required to review these documents and to contact the Office of Student Affairs on their campus if they have any questions. Online copies will contain the most up to date versions of policies and supersede any printed copies should any discrepancies exist. The provisions of the Mercer University Student Handbook supersede collegiate and campus policies and procedures.
