Student Handbook

The Undergraduate Student Handbook has been prepared for the undergraduate students, faculty, and staff of Saint Mary's College of California, and others wishing to know more about College policies, procedures, programs, and activities.

As a community that celebrates its Catholic, Lasallian, and Liberal Arts traditions and receives inspiration in the life of our Founder, Saint John Baptist de La Salle, Saint Mary’s College expresses these values in specific and intentional ways. A student will find that the five Lasallian Core Principles of Faith in the Presence of God, Respect for All Persons, Inclusive Community, Quality Education, and Concern for the Poor and Social Justice give direction to and find expression among the College community. These five Lasallian Core Principles provide the framework through which our students conduct themselves and are consistent with College policies. See the Undergraduate Student Handbook link above.
