For Parents

Welcome Parents

The journey that your son or daughter will take to pursue his or her educational goals is very important to us.  We know this is just as important to you.  We've designed this area of our site especially for our prospective Mount parents.  Please browse our site.  We'd like to help with any questions you might have. The following links take you to information you may find especially helpful.

Dear Parents,

Thank you for your interest in Mount Saint Mary’s University.

The mission of the Mount is to educate students willing to make a difference in their professions and communities.  As a Catholic institution, the Mount is known for its outstanding academics, leadership programs and a reputation for graduate placement; 60% of our students have graduate degrees.  We strive to create leaders through scholarly research and social responsibility.  Student can take advantage of an intimate learning environment that includes small classes (12:1) and personal attention from staff and faculty.  Our generous financial aid packages combined with merit scholarships make us a competitive option for families that are shopping for that “right” school.

As a University known for its nurturing environment, we understand the importance parents and family play on a student’s success in college.  If you are beginning the college search for your student, please feel free to include your information in our Parent Database.  We will send you upcoming information regarding the Mount and general information about how to counsel your student through the admission and financial aid cycle; we will send scholarship information whenever possible.  Please be aware that although our database asks for your student’s name, Mount Saint Mary’s will not contact your student or send information until s/he fills out our online inquiry form.
