Our Commitment

We understand that all families’ financial circumstances are unique. That’s why we’re committed to keeping our tuition affordable and offering a broad range of financial assistance opportunities, from tuition grants to scholarships and work study, in order to make a Mount St. Mary education possible for more students with a demonstrated need and interest. In fact, more than $626,000 in financial aid was awarded to Mount St. Mary students during the 2022-2023 school year. We’re also proud to be an ACE Scholarship partner and a Succeed Scholarship partner.
