Apply - Master of Science in Data Science

Prospective students may submit an application in one of two ways: Directly to Saint Mary’s College or using PSMCAS, a centralized application service for Professional Science Masters programs.  Each application requires the same information and has the same deadline; the way in which you submit your application differs. Information about both methods of application can be found below.

Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis, but prospective students are encouraged to apply early in order to increase their chance of admission.  Applications completed by January 15, 2017 will receive a decision no later than February 1, 2017.  The program has a priority deadline of June 15, 2017; applications may only be submitted after this date if seats are available.

To submit your application directly to the College, you must complete the application form, submit the application fee of $50 and provide all supporting documents for your application to be considered. Letters of recommendation can be submitted along with the application or mailed directly to Saint Mary’s College at the address below.

Apply to Saint Mary’s
Through PSMCAS

If you are applying to other professional science masters programs, you may wish to apply using PSMCAS, a centralized application service. Using this method, you will complete the PSMCAS application form and submit the appropriate fee to PSMCAS ($125 if this is your first application or $65 if it is an additional application; there is no additional fee charged by Saint Mary’s College).  Letters of recommendation, test scores and official transcripts may be sent to PSMCAS or directly to the College.
