Financial Aid is a partnership 

College is expensive. But we are here to help. Our financial aid staff will sit down with you to go through the financial aid process step-by-step if you need it. Every student's situation is unique but it's our mission to do everything we can to help make Saint Mary's affordable for you and your family. 

This year 71% of our students received need-based aid. Add to that merit aid, the number goes up to 75%. Our average total aid Freshmen package (including loans and work-study) was $28,781.

Start by checking out your eligibility and how to apply. Don't forget to look into scholarships offered by groups in your area or other national associations.
