The Mount seeks students who can benefit from our academic program and contribute positively to our community. Candidates for freshman admission to the university should have followed a four-year college preparatory course of study, including the specific coursework listed below, and be students of good character.
Students seeking regular freshman admission should submit their completed application to the university as early as possible in the senior year, but no later than March 1. Admissions decisions are made on a rolling basis. Completed applications received after March 1 will be considered on a space-available basis.
In order to be considered for admission, we require that students submit a completed on-line application. We also require the following additional materials in order to have a complete application package:
- A $45 application fee: If the application fee is a financial hardship, requests for a fee waiver should come through the school counselor and preferably on the College Board's Fee Waiver Request Form.
- High school transcript(s): We recommend that students complete a minimum of 4 years of English, 3 years each of Mathematics and Science, 2 years of one foreign language, and 3 years of social studies/history. Have your high school send directly to the Admissions Office. Normally, we will want to see senior grades included; if you have already graduated, a complete and final transcript should be sent. Applicants who have more than these minimum expectations are likely to receive more favorable consideration.
- Standardized Test Scores: We request that the results of the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) and/or the American College Testing program (ACT) be sent to the Admissions Office. Either direct results from the testing agency or results included on official school transcripts are acceptable. The university's CEEB number is 5421, and its ACT number is 1726. If a student plans to take the SAT/ACT after all application materials have been sent to the Mount and would like the new SAT/ACT scores considered in application review, the student should call the Admissions Office and request that a "hold" be placed on the application until the new SAT/ACT scores are received. Once an admissions decision has been made, new SAT/ACT scores will not change that decision.
- Recommendations: A recommendation letter or recommendation form from a teacher or your guidance counselor should also be submitted directly to the Mount.
