Saint Mary's College COVID-19 Information and Resources 

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

Students can look forward to a wide array of student-centered support services, leadership opportunities, activities, spiritual guidance, and career and professional development opportunities that reflect the transformative whole-person education for which Saint Mary’s is known.
