COVID-19 News & Resources

Saint Mary's College COVID-19 Information and Resources 

Instruction is primarily, and for many students exclusively, delivered remotely. We offer some in-person and hybrid courses for undergraduates living on campus.

A wide array of student-centered support services, leadership opportunities, activities, spiritual guidance, and career and professional development opportunities are available that reflects the transformative whole-person education for which Saint Mary’s is known.

We aim to prevent the spread of infection with enhanced protocols, reconfigured campus spaces, and careful control of campus access.

Recognizing the increased financial pressures on our students and their families during this COVID-19 pandemic, we have been taking steps to respond to your needs. Contact the Financial Aid Department for more information:
