Mount Sacred Heart College was a small Catholic women's college in Hamden, Connecticut. It was founded in 1946 and closed in the summer of 1997 due to low enrollment.

It was founded and operated by the Missionary Zelatrices of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, an Italian religious institute founded in 1894 now known as the Apostles of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. It was designed as a sisters' college, or a college primarily designed to educate nuns. In light of its mission, its curriculum focused on theology, although it was not limited to that area.

The Zelatrices/Apostles of the Sacred Heart still operate Sacred Heart Academy in Hamden, which is a preparatory school for high school-aged girls.

The only remaining sisters' college in the United States is the Assumption College for Sisters in Mendham, New Jersey.
