Serving those who serve us
Here at Mount Saint Mary College, we are grateful for all the servicemen and women who protect our country. We are pleased to offer courses and programs specifically for veterans and active duty military both on campus and at West Point and provide a number of resources for those interested in obtaining their degree from the Mount.
Satellite Program offered on post at West Point
For over 25 years, Mount Saint Mary College has offered an accelerated degree program at West Point to make degree completion convenient for military students. Students can take classes in three subjects on base:
- Business management
Discounted tuition rate
Ask about the significantly discounted tuition rate offered to military members, their dependents, and DOD civilians for some classes.
Active duty/veteran benefits
Students may use their military branch's Tuition Assistance Program or the Post-9/11 GI Bill to pay for classes on campus or at West Point. Financial aid is also available.
Military at the Mount
"After graduating from Duchess Community College, I started looking for a school that had social work and a department that worked with adult learners who have a learning disability. I graduated from the Mount in 1997 and 1999 with a bachelor’s degree in Human Services and a master's degree in Elementary & Special Education. Prior to completing my degree, I served in the U.S. Navy and was looking for a school that worked with vets.
The college is light years ahead of a lot of other colleges when it comes to veteran’s education. The Mount is a good choice for a veteran because it makes registering very easy with no hassle and has very friendly employees willing to help. In addition, the Education Department went above and beyond what I expected in order to assure that I would be successful. Choosing the Mount makes adjusting to the college life easier because you feel supported.
While studying at the Mount, I was able to complete internships at Gardnertown and Temple Hill School. Overall, my experience with the college has been nothing but positive. It is a great college with great staff that make the entire experience a wonderful memory." ~Timothy Johnson, Mount alumnus
