Veterans Benefits

Flags at Mount St. Mary's in front of Bradley Hall As we enter our third century of service to our Church and our nation, it is quite appropriate that we recognize and thank all veterans for their faithful and selfless service.  Mount St. Mary's University is proud to thank all veterans at the Veterans Walkway, near Patriot Hall.

The Yellow Ribbon Program
Mount St. Mary's participates in the Yellow Ribbon Program which allows eligible veterans and dependents to attend the Mount tuition-free. Beginning in 2011-12, the Yellow Ribbon Scholarship supplements any Mount St. Mary’s scholarship up to $17,500 or the cost of tuition, whichever is less. If the combined value of the two scholarships is less than tuition, Mount St. Mary’s will award additional institutional funds to cover the remainder of the tuition. Recipients are not eligible to receive any other institutionally-funded need-based grants.

We also encourage you to explore the GI Bill Website as you consider applying to Mount St. Mary's University.
