The Mount's Value
How do you measure the value of a Mount education?
Is it that 98% of our students are in a job or in graduate school within one year of graduation? Or that our graduates--whether they be accounting or criminal justice or English or philosophy majors, are in high demand and they meet with success when they enter the workplace? It's all of that and more.
Mount St. Mary’s is different from other institutions.
Last year alone the FBI interviewed 38 graduating seniors, 29 of them were awarded conditional job offers and eight were hired in the spring of 2008. And that is just one employer. Read about some of successful alumni or visit the career center to learn about internships, employers and job fairs.
There is also our powerful sense of community. Our community informed by a faith-filled environment. We are different because of the degree to which we care for all of our students. We care deeply about each one of our students. We will look after you and promise to remain accessible to you – while at the same time holding you to high academic and personal standards. We are here to serve, central to our collective calling as a Catholic institution.
Mount students graduate well prepared for the "real-world." Professionally for their major, that's a given at an educational institution but also as well-rounded citizens thanks to a liberal arts education and Veritas Program. We encourage student leadership—in the classroom, on the playing fields, in our community and beyond. Mount students don’t wait to be asked—they see a need, they fill it.
Can you afford us?
Yes, we offer liberal financial aid packages…and lots of them. Last year 99% of Mount families received some form of financial aid with an average freshman award of $17,925. That equals more than $33 million a year awarded in financial aid! Learn more about financial aid available to you by clicking the appropriate link to the left.
