Our Students
The College’s record of educating talented students, primarily from the NYC metropolitan area, is impressive. For the past five years, total student enrollment has increased: we currently have more than 1,700 undergraduates and nearly 300 graduate students.

Nearly 50 percent of Mount graduates are the first generation in their families to attend college. A National Science Foundation-funded study in 2010 showed that the College of Mount Saint Vincent has the highest graduation rate in the country for Latino students in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).

The College also ranked first among the 25 Hispanic Serving Institutions identified in the study as models of effective practices.

U.S. News and World Report recently lauded the College as having among the best loan repayment rates in the country for colleges and universities serving high need students.

Washington Monthly named the College of Mount Saint Vincent #26 nationwide in Social Mobility, measured by greater than expected graduation rates for high need students. Only 7 percent better rated colleges and universities served nearly as many students from high need backgrounds.
