Your meeting is your time to get your answer. You must call to register and reserve your interview time (800) 448-4347.

Multi-Language Tours Available

The Admissions Office hosts personalized tours in American Sign Language, Amharic, French, German, Spanish, and Urdu. If you are interested in setting up one of these appointments, please contact Brenda Rigby with two week's notice at (301) 447-5032 or (this conversation will be in English). Based on the availability of our tour guides and your family, we will find the right time for you to visit Mount St. Mary’s University. Please note: while the tour could be in American Sign Language, Amharic, French, German, Spanish, or Urdu, all other meetings, confirmations, materials, and student services are only available in English. We expect the prospective student can converse in English. The Admissions Office is offering language specific tours so that the family members and supporters of our future students can also learn about the Mount. We look forward to welcoming you to campus.
