Congratulations; you've been accepted to Mount Saint Mary
College! We have provided a complete list of next step items to

Accepted Student Portal
Activate your student account on the Accepted Students Portal. This

deadlines. There will be a lot of information to share with you,
and some exciting events coming up. We'll make it easy for you to

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 www.fafsa.ed.gov. 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
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.
For accepted nursing students: the Nursing
division will offer a group advisement session on May 14th
at 6 pm. To register for the session, please email:

evaluation, and have met with your advisor, you can pay your

the Mount yet, schedule a visit to campus.
