Admission Exam

All qualified applicants will be invited to take the T.E.A.S exam with MSMU once all documents have been received by the deadline and evaluated by admissions.  You are not required to submit T.E.A.S scores with your application. However, if you have previously taken the T.E.A.S exam you can request that ATI Testing release your scores to Mount Saint Mary’s University. We will only accept official scores sent directly from ATI Testing, unofficial scores will not be accepted.

Waitlist Procedure

We do not have a waitlist that rolls over from start term to start term. We do select a waitlist from the completed applications for that specific term in case additional spaces become available for the specific term. If someone is put on the waitlist and no space becomes available for them, their application is withdrawn and would need to go through the reactivation and review process all over again in order to be considered for the next term. Formerly waitlisted students are not given priority consideration when their file goes through the review process.
