Exceptional is the standard at Mount Union

The University of Mount Union is a private university grounded in the liberal arts tradition and emboldened by market-smart, career-savvy options that offers a classic college experience—plus more. A Mount Union education delivers a high-quality academic curriculum featuring an array of majors. Whatever your abilities and previous experience, a Mount Union education will enhance your leadership skills through classroom learning, hands-on experiences, and engagement on campus. Live what you learn and build valuable career skills to prepare you for today’s realities and tomorrow’s challenges.

We believe it’s important to balance education in the classroom with a valuable campus experience. At Mount, we help students get involved on campus, and our Office of Diversity and Inclusion serves as a resource for all students by providing assistance for academic, social, cultural, and personal well-being. From serving on student organization executive boards to volunteering, students have a variety of opportunities to develop and lead. Mount Union also offers many student organizations with a multicultural focus. The Association of International Students (AIS), Brothers Building Bonds (BBB), Black Student Union (BSU), Hispanic Organization Latino America (HOLA), and Sister Circle help educate our community regarding the importance of cultural awareness.

We take pride in making a Mount Union education affordable for all families. Our tuition is 11% lower than the average cost of similar private institutions in Ohio. To continue enriching the experience for an increasingly diverse student body and strengthening student success, we offer a number of scholarships that recognize achievement both in and out of the classroom. The annual $2,000 Manzilla Multicultural Award is available to ethnically diverse and/or first-generation college students who have a GPA of 2.5 or higher.
