Get inside our gates. Learn more about our admissions process and application deadlines. 

Once you decide to apply to Saint Mary’s, the process begins with submitting the Common Application along with other required application materials. Around this time you should also schedule an interview with your admissions officer (if you can't make it to campus, don't worry, it's not required). And you can track the progress of your application using GaelPage.

Please contact us if you are uncertain about anything or have general questions.


Please note that while our extended priority deadline has passed, we are still accepting application for the fall of 2015 and both merit academic scholarships (no-need) and need based financial aid are still available 

We accept first-year applications for the fall and spring semesters. The deadlines are as follows:  

FALL TERM '15 Nov. 15, 2014 Jan. 15, 2015 Feb. 15, 2015
SPRING TERM '15 — — — — —  Jan. 1, 2015 Dec. 1, 2015

Students who have submitted all required application materials by the Priority Deadline will receive notification from the Admissions Committee by the New Year. If accepted, students are not required to enroll early or to pay an early deposit.

Students who have submitted all required application materials by the Regular Deadline should expect a decision by mid-March. Commitments from all first-year admitted students have a post-mark deadline of May 1.
