Discover how to receive your 20 percent tuition reduction

Graduates from one of our partnered community colleges or employees of a partnered organization are eligible to receive Mount St. Mary’s University’s Preferred Tuition Rate.

Mount St. Mary’s University’s Frederick campus offers undergraduate, post baccalaureate certificates, graduate, and post-graduate certificate programs onsite, online or a combination of both. The Mount is here to help you achieve your educational goals for a reduced cost and with expert faculty within your field of study.

As a partner with Mount St. Mary’s University’s Frederick campus, your employer has helped you remove a significant barrier many students face when returning to class: cost. Through the Mount’s Partnership Program, we have reduced the cost of tuition by at least 20% for all employees of a partnered organization. Learn more about tuition and fees.
Note: Partnership discounts cannot be combined with any other discounts or graduate assistantships.

Tuition Discount for Active-Duty Military

The Mount’s Division of Continuing Studies honors the tuition assistance (TA) benefit for active-duty military students, reducing the tuition costs to $250 per credit hour for eligible students pursuing an accelerated undergraduate or graduate program. Appropriate documentation is required each semester. To be eligible for the reduced military tuition rate, you need to submit the following document:

  • Proof of service statement or letter: Provide a copy of a statement or letter that verifies your current service status in the military. This document should clearly indicate your active duty or reserve status.

All active-duty servicemembers (including Guard and Reserve) must contact their Education Service Officer (ESO) or Education Counselor within their branch of service prior to enrolling in any courses at Mount St. Mary’s University. For more information about military tuition assistance processes, visit Military OneSource’s website.

Each military branch has its own process and TA application form. For more information, view the links below.

TA DECIDE is an information and comparison tool designed specifically to aid participants of the DoD's Tuition Assistance program in making informed choices on schools and education programs.
