11 MOUNT ALOYSIUS COLLEGE THEN AND NOW History The history of the College is rooted in the life of the Religious Sisters of Mercy who founded and sponsor Mount Aloysius College. Catherine McAuley founded the Religious Sisters of Mercy in Dublin, Ireland, in 1831 as a congregation devoted to the works of Mercy. It was one of the first active congregations of women religious in Ireland. Today, Sisters of Mercy serve in North and South America, Africa, Asia and Australia continuing their original charism of service to the needy through advocacy and direct service in health care, educational and social service agencies and institutions. The spirit of the congregation, dedicated to honoring the mercy of God, is one of enterprising response to need, coupled with compassion and hospitality, a spirit which is a goal of the Mount Aloysius family. Mount Aloysius College traces its Mercy heritage to the small community of Sisters who were sent to Pittsburgh in From Pittsburgh, they established a community in Chicago in 1845 and by 1848 they settled in nearby Loretto. On St. Mary s Street in Loretto, the Sisters built a school, which was to be the forerunner of St. Aloysius Academy. The Academy, built in 1853, was moved to its present site in In 1939, Mount Aloysius Junior College was founded through the initiative of Sister M. desales Farley, R.S.M. In 1991, Mount Aloysius amended its charter and scope of programs to include bachelor degrees. In the Spring of 2000, the College s charter was again amended to include master degrees. 11

This means that the College recognizes appropriate credits earned by servicemen in military schools or college extension programs while serving their country. Also, Mount Aloysius College participates in the Concurrent Admissions Program (ConAp) sponsored by the Army Recruiting Command. In this program, a person can enroll at Mount Aloysius College at the same time that he or she enlists in the military or while he or she is currently serving. In this way, the student is guaranteed a place when his or her active duty service is completed with tuition and fees being paid for from Montgomery G.I. Bill education benefits. Transfer Mount Aloysius College will consider credits for transfer into associate and bachelor degree programs from coursework taken at regionally-accredited post-secondary institutions which have received full accreditation, where the course work is equivalent to that of Mount Aloysius College and in which the student received a grade of C or better. Transfer credits are also granted from nationally accredited post-secondary institutions on a case-by-case basis. Transfer credits will be awarded based on the similarity of course exit competencies and is a function of course content, length, caliber of faculty, and quality of practical experiences, where applicable. As a central principle, implementation of this policy will provide equitable treatment for native and transfer students and ensure that students will not be required to repeat course work completed at an acceptable level of performance at a previously attended institution. It is the student s responsibility to provide course descriptions and catalogs to the Office of Undergraduate and Graduate Admissions from the college or university in order to evaluate course equivalence. Failure to submit course descriptions will void advanced academic standing. 20
