NON-DEGREE ONLINE INTELLIGENCE COURSES
Online courses may be taken by interested parties as stand-alone educational opportunities. Please see information below on available graduate non-degree educational opportunities.
Cyber Threat Analysis
This course explores the relatively new discipline of cyber threat analysis at a basic level, introducing students to the methodology of investigation, the threat environment (cyberspace), some of the online tools used by analysts, and their application in real world examples. Students will be introduced to the key concepts, tools, and terminologies used by professionals in the field and apply what they learn in lab exercises that model real-world events.
At the end of this course, learners will be able to:
- Describe common tradecraft used in cyber-attacks and analysis.
- Compare and contrast the differences between passive and active cyber intelligence tradecraft.
- Examine the characteristics of cyber attacks (server, client, denial of service)
- Assess the intelligence value of cyber attacks.
- Evaluate basic cyber influence operations.

Please contact them at 1-800-722-4867 or www.afford.com if you wish to pay by credit card. A processing fee will be charged to the cardholder by TMS.
Tuition Deferment/Company Tuition Reimbursement
Mercyhurst University allows you to delay payment of your current term bill up until an agreed upon date (usually 30 days) following the release of your course grades. This gives most employees enough time to receive their tuition reimbursement from their employers, and then pay their current term bill with the reimbursed funds. Importantly, the employee, not the employer, is ultimately responsible for all financial obligations to the college.
Recalculation Policy for Refunds
The Student Financial Services office will make the necessary recalculation adjustments to the student’s account when the student adds, drops, or withdraws from a class during a term. Charges will be recalculated according to the following schedule:
On or before the first day of class - 100% Refunded
Up to and including calendar day 8 - 100%
Calendar days 9 – 15 - 80%
Calendar days 16 – 22 - 70%
