Description

Originally an all-women’s school, the Mount Aloysius College in Cresson, Pennsylvania, has since expanded into a coeducational Catholic institution that strives to prepare students for exciting careers while fostering a dedication to values of service, social justice and mercy.

The college’s academics cover a wide range of liberal arts disciplines, including:

  • Behavior and Social Sciences
  • Nuclear Medicine
  • Sign Language
  • Business Administration
  • History and Political Science

To offer a dynamic college life, Mount Aloysius provides plenty of extracurricular opportunities for virtually all interests. You can develop leadership skills in the Student Government Association, gain professional experience by performing in theatre or musical productions or embody the school’s Catholic principles by volunteering in social outreach projects.

Student publications like The Belltower provide the students the opportunity to gain real-world experience while still a student. Other fine arts resources include the Wolf-Kuhn Gallery, which regularly hosts themed exhibits for leisure or to complement academic work.

To get started on this well-rounded educational experience, you can apply to Mount Aloysius by submitting an official high school diploma or GED, immunization records and official ACT/SAT scores.

If you plan on pursuing a Nursing degree, you must fulfill additional admissions requirements. For more information, please contact the school.

Tuition is set lower for students pursuing degrees outside of the medical sciences. To help all students in funding their education, Mount Aloysius offers financial aid through endowed scholarships, federal work-study programs and alternative private loans.
