International Student Admissions

Mount St. Mary’s University is a vibrant and diverse intellectual community that values and welcomes international students for admission from all countries and encourages students to examine and compare the many educational opportunities available. Our student body includes undergraduate and graduate students from nearly 50 countries around the world.


While Mount St. Mary's University is a best-value college, we do not offer fully funded international student scholarships and we do not offer Ph.D. programs, as was recently posted on social media by outside sources.
