International students at Mount St. Joseph University find a warm community that welcomes diversity and values the wisdom that comes from other cultures. Thank you for considering Mount St. Joseph University. 

Why the Mount?

The Mount’s commitment to diversity extends across the nation and across the globe. We encourage international students to bring their perspectives and experiences to the Mount to enhance the overall campus learning experience.

Students come to the Mount because they know our small class sizes mean individual attention from actual professors, not from teaching assistants or graduate students. They love being close to downtown Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky, and find great support through our many academic and career resources.
