5-Year Program Majors attending graduate and undergraduate level courses (in the same academic term) receive per credit tuition billing at the respective graduate and undergraduate rates.

  • 5-Year Education Majors – BA/MSed track – have the option to receive the alumni discount for graduate courses or to extend institutional aid (excluding the MSMC Grant) to the fall and spring terms of their 5th year (9th & 10th semesters), if attending full-time. [Institutional aid is reduced to cover the cost of tuition only (not fees)]
  • 5-Year BS/MBA Majors may not extend institutional aid to the fall and spring terms of their 5th year (9th & 10th semesters), as their traditional undergraduate degree is conferred at the conclusion of their 4th year. At the start of their 5th year, BS/MBA Majors are classified as graduates (no longer eligible for institutional aid) and may receive the alumni discount on graduate-level courses.

Mount Alumni: Students who earned a bachelor's or master's degree from the Mount (with the exception of 5-year bachelor's/master's degree scholarship students) may receive a 25% reduction to graduate tuition! Come back to the Mount for a graduate degree, save money, and improve your range of possibilities in a competitive job market.
