Saint Mary's is committed to helping students become first-generation college graduates. Our High Potential Program provides support to students as they transition to a rigorous academic college environment.


If you are a first-generation college student (neither parent has completed a college degree), you are eligible to apply for the High Potential program (HP).

Applicants for HP will need to be admitted to Saint Mary’s through the traditional application process prior to being considered for the program.

To see if you or a particular student you know is appropriate for the program, or for more information, please contact us:
