Active Duty Military

For active duty military, service members are encouraged to contact their Educational Service Officer (ESO) or command counselor prior to applying for admission or enrolling at the university.

Thank You for Your Service

Mount Saint Mary's University welcomes students who have served our country as members of the armed forces. We are committed to providing veterans, service members, and military families with the highest level of support, dedication, and superior education enhanced by an emphasis on building leadership skills and fostering a spirit to serve others.

Enroll at the Mount

Our mission is to provide access and excellence in undergraduate, adult undergraduate programs, and graduate education to a diverse student population. Our mission is to educate active-duty service members, Veterans, members of the National Guard, Reservists, and survivors or dependents, and maximize their educational benefits in compliance with the procedures and regulations of the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs. We are here to support you and we are here to help.

Academic Support

Mount Saint Mary's University is one of 24 California colleges and universities to sign the One More Veteran pledge, demonstrating a commitment to recruiting, retaining, educating and graduating student-veterans. Veterans are supported academically through the Office of Student Affairs. The Dean of Student Life and Veteran’s Student Life Coordinator are committed to support undergraduate and graduate student veterans’ academic, social, and community life at the Mount.

Whether you are a new student veteran who has completed service, or who’s education has been interrupted to serve and are now returning, or started your studies elsewhere and is now considering transferring to the Mount, we will help guide you to the resources you need to make the most of your Mount experience.
