Visit Grant

The $2,000 Visit Grant is a four-year recurring grant that will be awarded to seniors who attend an on-campus admissions event between January 1, 2023 and May 1, 2024 and apply by the December 1 Early Action II deadline for Fall 2024 entry. This award is contingent upon residential status and cannot be combined with an athletic scholarship.

In-Person Visits

Explore all of our in-person visit options below and register to experience life at the Mount today.

Mountaineer Visits are offered most Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays, at 9:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m., and involve a 30-minute admissions presentation and a student-led tour of campus.
