Study Away


YWM Coalition Student Exchange Program

The Mount Saint Mary’s University family extends far beyond our students, faculty, staff and alumnae — it also includes the opportunity to study at one of the 40 small, private, non-profit colleges and universities that serve primarily low-income, first-generation students in the Yes We Must Coalition. The goals of the YWM Coalition are to advocate for the institutions and students in this sector of higher education and to share resources and best practices in order to enrich YWMC students’ learning experiences and increase graduation rates.

The YWM Student Exchange Program allows students to attend one another’s campuses as exchange students. A few schools include:

Saint Elizabeth University

Morristown, New Jersey

Keuka College

Keuka Park, New York

Ferrum College

Ferrum, Virginia

Choose a campus and a program that fits with your current educational strategy — or select something altogether different to expand your educational horizons. It’s all available to you as part of the Yes We Must Coalition.

And best of all, one hundred percent of your Mount Saint Mary’s University financial aid package may be used to cover your educational costs at any of the member institutions.
