Concordia Students—See Yourself Here


Continue your pursuit of passion, purpose, and service with Mount Saint Vincent

Following the news of Concordia College’s announcement that they will close its doors at the end of the 2021 spring semester, Mount Saint Vincent announced its plans to fully support Concordia students who wish to transfer uninterruptedly into one of the College’s many nationally recognized programs of study.

“Concordia and Mount Saint Vincent are very similar—we share a commitment to ecumenism, and we are both academically excellent, authentically inclusive, liberal arts colleges,” said President Susan R. Burns. “The College is dedicated to its inherent promise to provide access to an authentic, high-quality education to talented students of every background. By providing all students a transformational academic experience, regardless of whether they start with us or transfer to complete their degree at the Mount, we will support each and every Concordia student looking to continue their education with us. We look forward to welcoming you to the University of Mount Saint Vincent. All Dreams Welcome.”

The College will assist all qualified undergraduate and graduate students, as well as those in professional programs, as they continue their studies. The Mount offers over 70 degree programs and course offerings—many comparable to Concordia’s—including majors and minors in the sciences and mathematics, humanities and the arts, social sciences, accounting, business, communication, and education, among others.

We will work with each qualified student to honor coursework in these programs of study and map the rest of your courses within Mount Saint Vincent’s curriculum, ensuring that students will not lose any time or work. Nursing and education students are particularly encouraged to apply as their Concordia curriculum closely matches the Mount’s coursework. Most importantly, all Concordia students transferring to the College will be able to continue their education wherever they are in their program of study—seamlessly.

We welcome those affected by Concordia’s planned closing to contact the University of Mount Saint Vincent for one-on-one, personalized transfer counseling advice. Schedule your virtual visit and complete every step to transfer to the Mount—all in one day. To speed up the process, please prepare your transcripts and, if possible, a copy of your current financial aid package to receive an admission decision instantly.

Button saying "Apply Now"

There’s no better time to apply. Mount Saint Vincent continues to garner a steady stream of accolades that nationally recognize its lasting influence on the lives of its students. For instance, for the second consecutive year, U.S. News and World Report included the College in its Top Performers on Social Mobility list, securing a spot at #22 for Regional Universities North. The ranking measures how well colleges serve low-income students, especially regarding their graduation rates. Additionally, Money magazine named the Mount as one of the nation’s Best Colleges in America, Ranked by Value in its 2020-2021 higher education rankings.

The Mount is also currently implementing its newest multipurpose building, Aquino Hall. The five-story, 56,000 square-foot building serves a dual purpose—the top three floors will provide suite-style housing for resident students and the lower two floors will feature technologically advanced nursing simulation laboratories that will support the latest and best practices for training nursing professionals.
