MSMU Honor Roll, drum roll please!

Several MSMU Online students recently made the Dean’s list.

It’s no easy accomplishment to make our Honor Roll! Students must maintain a 3.5 GPA to qualify. In addition, students must have completed at least 12 letter graded units per semester for at least two consecutive semesters. Now, that’s impressive! You’ve made us proud!

Open House – it was a great day!

It was a great day at MSMU Online! On Tuesday, April 26th, 2016, surrounded by picturesque palm trees, warm weather and vibrant murals, we opened our doors (literally).


Tucked behind tinted glass windows at the Doheny Library, our offices are often mistaken for a second library entrance. I am not kidding, we even have a sign put up that reads “Library Entrance Around the Corner,” so we thought what better time than now to open our doors to our MSMU community.  We were thrilled by the turnout!


It was great to connect face-to-face with staff across campus, faculty members, current online students and parents. Our Executive Director, Lisa Dawley, took a moment to introduce our rock star MSMU Online team!




Did I mention we had food and prizes? We had several raffle prize winners, including Angela Abruzzi, Kendra Nickerson, Francis Salandanan and Diana Raya.


We would like to thank all of those who attended MSMU Online’s first Open House. We look forward to seeing you at the next! #msmuonline

Setting a Vision and Mission for MSMU Online

Greetings from the team at MSMU Online! Our faculty and staff are extremely dedicated to the success of our students. We are a caring group of people with unique life experiences.  We also have a wide range of interests that includes traveling, juggling and marathon running! But most importantly, we want you to know that from our Success Coaches to our Admissions and Financial Aid teams, we’ve got you covered.

Our fearless leader, Dr. Lisa Dawley, reviews the “5 Pillars of Distinction” with the Mount Saint Mary’s University, Los Angeles Online team.

In February, we held our first annual retreat in Santa Monica, California.  During this day-long event, we discussed important topics, such as the Vision and Mission for our Online Programs, and developed our major goals and objectives for the year.. At MSMU Online the Vision and Mission are big and bold.  We are truly dedicated to our students and helping them become the best version of themselves:

Empowering humanity with accessible, extraordinary education.

Fostering a spirit of service, leadership and digital learning innovation to a global community of scholars.
