Financial Aid

The Mount is dedicated to helping students and their families navigate the financial aid process. Here's how to get started:

  • The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is available. You can access this at The Mount’s FAFSA School Code is 002778.
  • File your application by February 15 to receive your financial aid package in early April.
  • If you already filed the FAFSA in the fall, update your form to include the Mount’s school code to your application.
  • Schedule an appointment with a Financial Aid counselor to discuss monthly payment plans, or to go over financing issues.

Credit Evaluation and Advisement

Receive and review your transcript credit evaluation from the Registrar's office within 5-7 business days after acceptance. Transcript credit evaluations will inform you of how many credits are eligible to transfer to the Mount.

After you receive your transcript credit evaluation, contact your academic advisor listed on the bottom of your transcript credit evaluation.

Registration for fall is generally in April, and for the spring semester, in November. Advisement is necessary in order to register for classes, so be sure to schedule your appointment promptly.

Final Transcripts: If you completed any courses last semester or over the summer, have your final transcripts sent to the Admissions Office.
