Congratulations - You're officially a Mount student!

You've applied, been accepted, and paid your deposit. You're coming to the Mount - and we're thrilled you've chosen us as the next step on your educational journey! Whether you are new to university or just new to the Mount, congratulations on taking an exciting next step. Regardless of when you'll be starting classes (September, January or over the summer), there are things you can do in advance to prepare for your arrival. This page has been developed as a roadmap, but you’re not on this journey alone.

Take a look through the sections below to get familiar with campus and student services, plan ahead for housing and finances, connect to academic advisors and learn more about registering for classes. If at any time you feel uncertain about preparing for your arrival, or have a question that's not answered below - please let us know by emailing msvu.ca. We would love to hear from you.

A beautiful and vibrant campus awaits you at the Mount. Small class sizes, friendly staff and faculty, and countless ways to participate in student life make the Mount a great place to grow personally and academically.     

Whether you’re living on or off campus or taking the bus or driving your car, the following links will help answer your questions about housing and transportation at the Mount.

Investing in your education is an important and exciting decision. Take time to plan your finances and explore the funding options available to you.

Academic Advisors are available to help you pick and schedule your courses, review program requirements, and refer you to other on-campus student support services.

A number of services are available to support you throughout your time at the Mount. These services include health and wellness, academic and personal counseling, career planning, accessibility services and athletics and recreation.  

Registering for classes requires you to have been accepted and paid your deposit. Transfer credit assessments must also be complete if you have prior academic experience. Once your deposit is paid, an email will be sent to the e-mail provided on your application from the IT&S helpdesk, containing your Mount username and password. You will need these to look up courses and register. 

Determine the date when registration will become open to you, and whether there is a registration/advising event which you can attend. Early Advising and Registration takes place in May of each year for high-school students entering in September. Transfer students are encouraged to connect with their faculty advisor to arrange academic advising. Academic Advising will help you identify the courses you need to graduate, while also helping you plan your course load. For more information on Academic Advising, see #4 above. 

The actual registration process takes place on our student portal, called myMount. You'll use the 'Registration Centre' portion of myMount to search for your courses, to create a preferred list and to register for classes. Download the step-by-step user guide to help you through the process.

Your students’ union is an elected and hired organization of students and staff that work both for and with the students of the Mount to provide our community quality student life, services, advocacy, and governance.

Whether you’re arriving in fall, winter, or spring staff and students are ready to welcome you with a range of exciting and informative activities that will introduce you to campus life.

The Mount uses a platform called myMount - that's where you register for classes, as well as see your course schedule, view your transcript, get tax forms and much more.

Moodle, on the other hand, is a course management platform used by many professors. Professors can set up and grade quizzes, create assignments, online discussions and more. All students have the ability to log in to Moodle using your username and password; what you see will depend on your courses and the level to which your professors use the technology.
