Orientation Details

We have created an orientation program to make sure our new ELI students feel comfortable at Mercer and are able to get their questions answered before classes begin. Orientation will take place before each term.

During orientation, students go on a tour of campus, take an English placement test, get their Mercer Bear Card, meet Mercer staff and faculty members from across campus, and attend various sessions regarding immigration, cultural adjustment, U.S. classroom behavior, and more!

Orientation is required for all new students.
