Transfer, adult and graduate students welcome at the Mount

July 15, 2011

Newburgh, NY -

Mount Saint Mary College will hold a special transfer student information session on July 27 from 4 to 7 p.m. in Curtin Memorial Library, on the campus at 330 Powell Avenue, Newburgh, N.Y.

The event is for college transfer and graduate students, and adults returning to school.

The evening is also a “last call” for prospective first-time freshmen to start college this year.

Admissions counselors will provide information about the Mount’s strong undergraduate programs for the health professions, education, business, human services and liberal arts.

Academic credits and official transcripts will be evaluated.

Financial aid counselors will explain the process making the Mount a very affordable choice for its 2,700 men and women.

Offering the most economical tuition in the Hudson Valley, the Mount's Accelerated Adult Degree Program, provides students 24 and over with the flexibility of evening/weekend schedules.

Adults can earn degrees in accounting, business, nursing, history, human services, psychology, social sciences and an interdisciplinary BA in education, with hybrid online programs in business and nursing.

The hybrid online business and nursing programs blend the best of traditional classroom instruction with the convenience of online learning.

Due to the rigorous nature of the nationally accredited nursing program at the Mount, nursing courses from other institutions are not transferrable.

Mount Saint Mary College also offers three master’s degrees: MBA, MS in education and MS in nursing.

To facilitate the transfer of credits, Mount Saint Mary College has special agreements with community colleges in Orange, Dutchess, Westchester, Rockland, Sullivan and Ulster counties, as well as graduate schools: most recently arranged, a joint degree program between Mount Saint Mary College and Fordham University in social work. Students completing this program will receive a BA degree in human services from the Mount and an MSW from Fordham.

Mount Saint Mary College overlooks the Hudson River Valley 60 miles north of New York City. To learn more, visit
