Academic Support & Resources

Students can look forward to a wide array of virtual 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. We have created new and reimagined ways to connect, engage, and get help: from a fully virtual Student Involvement Fair; to online tutoring, advising, and success coaching; to celebrating the faith, heritage, and culture of the Latinx community in honor of Our Lady of Guadalupe; and so much more.  Visit individual program websites for specific up to date changes and requirements.
