Seton Visit Grant

Schedule a visitAccepted fall 2017 freshmen and transfer students who reside outside a 100-mile radius from Mount St. Mary's University and who visit campus for an admissions-sponsored program or an appointment with an admissions representative enjoy a special benefit. As a leading Catholic institution of higher education, the Mount recognizes that the following two elements of the application process are essential for students and their families: visiting campus and college affordability. The Seton Grant is named in honor of Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton, the first American-born Saint, one of the first visitors to the Mount in the early 1800s.

This one-time award is valued at $1,000 and will be distributed during the student's first year. This grant requires full-time enrollment and is non-renewable.

Pre-registration for your visit is required. Call the Admissions Office at 800-448-4347, or schedule your visit online.
