Veteran and Military-Connected Student Admissions

We support those who have served selflessly.

Why Choose The Mount?

The Mount has a reputation for providing personalized attention and support to our students. This is important for all students, but we also have experience specifically in providing additional supports for all of our military-connected students: veterans, active duty, reserves, and spouses and children of members of the armed services.

At Mount St. Mary's University, we are proud of our history of working with the armed services.

  • During World War II, at least 727 Mountaineers join the armed forces, 48 of them as chaplains, and the college initiated a CAA-War Training Service School for flying specialists. A Navy V-12 deck officers school was established, enrolling nearly 400 officers.
  • In honor of its service to the armed forces training programs, the school received a 3-inch/ 50-caliber anti-aircraft gun from the USS Detroit—a ship credited with one downed and one assisted downed aircraft during the battle at Pearl Harbor. Two years later Memorial Gymnasium was built and dedicated to the alumni killed in World Wars I and II.
  • In 2009, the Mount established our Veterans' Walkway to honor the Mount's military veterans, featuring monuments, the American flag, and flags from each of the branches of the armed services.
  • In 2012, the Veterans Affairs Acquisition Academy selected the Mount to provide the academic component of its Warriors to Workforce program, training veterans with service-related disabilities to become successful Contract Specialists for the VA and other governmental agencies.
