Admissions & Aid

We’re glad you’re considering Saint Mary’s. It's a place where a highly diverse student body can access a topflight education. We’d love to get to know you.


If you’re applying to Saint Mary’s right out of high school as an undergraduate, or transferring from a two- or four-year institution we’re sure you have a million questions about Saint Mary’s— about our academic programs, financial aid, faculty and student diversity, residence halls, meal plans, study abroad, or location.


If you’re considering SMC for graduate work, you might want to know those same things. (You’ll certainly enjoy quite a few meals in our dining hall.) But you’ve probably got some questions that are more specific: about our faculty and students, our academic reputation, and educational options that suit a working professional lifestyle.

Our job is to make sure you get the answers to your questions as quickly as possible. You’ll find many of the answers here on our site, but our staff is always available if there’s anything you’d like to ask us.
