Current students have cited that their top reasons for choosing and staying in a MMU program are:
- The flexibility to start and stop studies as needed, as new courses begin every 5 weeks.
- The personalized attention given in small classes (classes are capped at 25 students) with faculty who have real-world experience and go "above and beyond" to help students.
- Mount Mercy University’s reputation and the institution’s commitment to leadership and compassionate service.
- The freedom to balance coursework and home-life commitments, as the online course structure does not require students to log in at certain times through the session.

"The reason why I choose to study in Mount Mercy’s online program is because of both the flexibility and the quality of education you receive. Knowing that I no longer have to stress about working a 40-hour job around my school schedule is very convenient. When it comes to the quality of education, I often refer to my experiences at community colleges. At times, I felt as if I was just a number, but at Mount Mercy, you can tell that the faculty really does care about educating their students. My experience so far has been great! I am extremely happy that I decided to come here. I feel like anyone who wants to come out of college a more well-rounded person with a better understanding in whatever field of studies they choose needs to come to Mount Mercy."
