University Partnership

In 2022, HCPA entered into a partnership with Mount St. Mary’s University (MD). This partnership will guarantee admission and a four year renewable scholarship to graduates of HCPA who enroll at Mount St. Mary’s University. The student must have a 3.00 GPA (85%) – standardized test scores will be considered but are not required. Admitted students will receive, at minimum, a $25,000 four year award with a total value of $100,000. The student must maintain an appropriate, pre-determined GPA based on the value of the scholarship in order to renew annually. The award can only be received for four years total, and the scholarship is not transferrable to other institutions.
