How to Apply to Mount Mary as a graduate student

Note: The application fee is waived for Mount Mary alumnae. If you’re an alumna, contact your graduate admission counselor to obtain the waiver code prior to submitting your application.
  3. Submit your official transcripts from all colleges or universities attended. You will need to contact each institution (typically the registrar’s office) to have your transcript sent, with an embossed seal, directly to: Mount Mary University, Admission Office, 2900 N. Menomonee River Parkway, Milwaukee, WI 53222-4597. If you are in the process of completing a bachelor’s degree, send your current transcript when you apply, and then send your official transcript once the degree is completed. If you previously attended Mount Mary, you do not need to request Mount Mary transcripts, but should provide transcripts from other schools, if applicable. Use Mount Mary’s Transcript Request Form (PDF) to help speed up this process.
  4. Submit two letters of recommendation. The recommendations should be from professionals and/or professors able to comment on abilities and commitment. One letter should preferably be from your current employer. Use our Letter of Recommendation for Graduate Study Form (PDF).
