In its admissions process, Mount Aloysius reviews each applicant’s academic background, high school activities, SAT, ACT, or CLT scores (see test optional policy), and academic potential. This process is personal. The College makes every effort to discuss the admissions process and requirements with every prospective student.


Mount Aloysius College will consider credits for transfer into associate and bachelor degree programs from coursework taken at regionally-accredited post-secondary institutions which have received full accreditation, where the course work is equivalent to that of Mount Aloysius College and in which the student received a grade of “C” or better. Transfer credits are also granted from nationally accredited post-secondary institutions on a case-by-case basis.
