Reception Site Fees
The cost of participating is $100.00 per graduate. Groups should provide one check made out to Saint Mary's College covering all individuals in the group. Include an additional $100.00 in the check amount, if purchasing insurance through Saint Mary's College.
Reception Site Fees fees help cover the costs involved with setting up the sites (i.e., portable restrooms, trash cans, chalking designated sites, etc., etc.) and with cleaning up after the receptions are concluded. As the graduate schools have their graduation celebrations on Sunday, the campus must be returned to its pristine condition overnight. These fees must be paid by checks or money orders made out to Saint Mary's College. No cash will be accepted. The SMC Post Office sells money orders
Each group is required to provide the College with a Certificate of Insurance naming the College as an additional insured for $1,000,000.00. These certificates can be arranged through your own insurance agent or through Events and Conferences. The rate for a one-day policy arranged by the College is $100.00 per reception group.
The Application for College insurance coverage or proof of insurance through your own agent, must be returned to Conference Services along with your signed contract and site fee (check or money order) by TBA.
Note: if purchasing insurance through the college, include the additional $100 payment in the same check or money order with the site fee payment payable to Saint Mary’s College.
