Special Programs

Counselor Financial Aid Workshop

A program specifically designed for high school student counselors, the Financial Aid Workshop is hosted by Dave Reeder, director of financial aid at the Mount. Mr. Reeder will review changes to the college financial aid system and answer questions from the audience.

This program is intended to be discussion based and will leave counselors better prepared to assist their students in the financial aid process. 

Multi-Language Tours Available

The Admissions Office hosts personalized tours in American Sign Language, Amharic, Arabic, Eweh, French, Ga, German, Hausa, Italian, Lingala, Portuguese, Spanish, Swahili, Twi, and Urdu.

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 your specific language 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.
