We have established this community updates page for students, parents, alums, and visitors to our campuses. On this page, you will be able to access current plans and updates on the status of the campus as well as resources related to COVID-19 from local and federal experts. The health of our entire community remains a priority.
Recent updates include:
We understand the financial, personal, and academic strain that the pandemic has placed on our students. There is a Covid-19 stimulus package under development by the U.S. Congress which is expected to include additional assistance for colleges and universities and their students. Once the bill is approved, it will take some time for understanding of available funds and the eligibility parameters for awarding assistance. MSMU will review any approved bill as quickly as possible and hope to have information to students in early January 2021.
In the meantime, please be certain you have addressed the following through MyMSMU in order to avoid any problems with Spring 2021 registration.
- Confirm you do not have any outstanding financial aid documents which prevent processing of aid for the 2020-21 academic year.
- Any prior balances from Fall 2020 or before must be either paid in full or you must be currently enrolled in a past term payment plan for those charges.
- Students are expected be current on all payment plans with no outstanding or missed payments.
- Students with prior balances from Fall 2020 or before must either make payment or apply for a past term payment plan.
- In accordance with county and state public health guidelines and in consideration of the continued severity of the spread of the COVID-19 virus in our region, all spring classes will be taught remotely at this time, except for courses that the State of California has previously approved for essential workforce training. At Mount Saint Mary’s, this includes some of our nursing and Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) courses that relate to simulations, practicums, and clinical placements.
- Our Spring 2021 Semester Plan – COVID-19 Response has been posted. This plan has been developed to provide guidance and information to students, faculty, staff, alumnae and visitors to our campuses, and has been developed in accordance with county and state public health guidelines and in consideration of the continued severity of the spread of the COVID-19 virus in our region.
- For the latest information on spring classes, students should visit Web Advisor or Student Planning in Self-Service through myMSMU.
- Campus locations remain open. However, only essential workers and the students approved for essential workforce training will be allowed on campus. No visitors will be allowed. See limited access policy for details.
