Congratulations on your acceptance to Mount St. Mary’s University! We hope that you are proud of your accomplishment, and that in a short while we will call you a fellow Mountie!

Now that you’ve been accepted, what’s next?

Navigating the financial aid process may seem overwhelming but we’re here to help. Learn more about how we can help make college as affordable as possible. (Though our priority deadline was March 1, we continue to accept FAFSAs and award need-based aid on a rolling basis. If you have not already done so, we encourage you to submit your FAFSA as soon as possible so that we may provide you with a financial aid package in a timely manner.)
