Veterans and Military

The College of Mount Saint Vincent is proud to be a Yellow Ribbon School and welcomes active military and veterans who wish to further their education. The Mount offers both undergraduate degrees in over 40 different subject areas and graduate degrees in Business, Education, Nursing, and International Development and Service.

The Mount is described as a very personal place in a very big city. Just 12 miles from midtown Manhattan, our location gives each student access to the educational, cultural and career resources of New York City.

Small classes and a rigorous curriculum define a Mount education. Students receive the personal connection and guidance they need in an intimate setting, which is a hallmark of a top higher education experience.
