If you need any assistance with this, please reach out to your program director.

Log in to your Canvas account

The Mount’s learning management system used for your classwork is called Canvas. Canvas is a tool that instructors use during each course to facilitate communication with and among the students in the course. It is not the official system for student records - that is MyMount. You can find your syllabus in Canvas, your grades as you progress through the course, and your instructor may also post important announcements, assignments, discussion boards, and more. Make sure you review each of your courses in Canvas a week or two before it begins, and check Canvas regularly while you are enrolled in the course.

Buy your textbooks

Go to the Mount’s bookstore and use the “textbooks” tab to find the textbooks needed for your courses.

Request your Mount student ID card

You will need your Mount ID card to access the Frederick campus building, as it is a secure facility. You can also use your Mount ID card to access sporting events, access the library and check out books, and buy meals on the main campus. Learn more about requesting your Mount card and uploading your photo.

Pay for classes

You can pay for classes through MyMount. Payment arrangements must be made by the first week of class. Contact the Accounting & Finance Office at 301-447-5353 or email with any questions about your bill or paying online. If you applied for financial aid, please reach out to the Financial Aid office at or at 301-447-5207.

Come to campus

If your classes are held at the Frederick campus, you will need your Mount student ID card to enter the building. Parking is free at the Frederick campus. If you are attending classes at the Emmitsburg campus or using any of the student services at the Emmitsburg campus, you will need to either register your vehicle with Public Safety or use the visitor parking space.
