Meet Saint Mary's

Important Update

Saint Mary's College is closely monitoring the spread of the coronavirus COVID-19. At this time, we have made the following decisions regarding campus visits:

  • At this time, all visits will be virtual.

We are sorry for the inconvenience this causes. We will continue to monitor the situation and will update this message if any other changes occur to our visit programming. In the meantime, you may set up a virtual meeting with your admission counselor. We've set-up drop in office hours, one-on-one application counseling sessions, virtual tours, and special virtual events including graduate fairs and workshops.

We hope to be fully operational soon and look forward to welcoming you to campus for an amazing visit experience!


As we all practice social distancing to reduce the spread of COVID-19, we are still dedicated to ensuring that our admission counselors are here for you as you plan your graduate education. Use the events calendar to register for an individual virtual visit or drop in for virtual office hours. An individual virtual campus tour guarantees a one-on-one meeting with your admission counselor at a specific time. Dropping in on office hours means your questions will be answered, but you may have to wait for your counselor to finish chatting with another prospective student. Both opportunities ensure that your questions are answered and offer an opportunity to virtually tour campus with your counselor.

Virtual Campus Visits

No matter which program you enter, you will spend time learning on the Saint Mary’s campus. Often, there’s no better way to get a feel for whether a school is right for you than to visit. We welcome all prospective graduate students to visit us and get a personalized tour of our beautiful location.

As a student you'll have access to all campus amenities, and your visit will allow you to become familiar with the myriad facilities and services available. Tour our laboratories. Browse our library facilities. Meet with your future professors to discuss your academic and research interests. Talk with our admissions office about the application process.

No matter what you want to learn more about, we’ll make sure your visit is informative and memorable.

Please use our events calendar to register for a campus visit or workshop.

If you can’t make it to campus to talk in person, we also offer online chats as a way to get to know us better and answer any questions. We’re available to chat on a variety of platforms, including Zoom, Skype, FaceTime, and Google Hangouts. You can find us using our email address,, or on Skype using our handle SMC_Graduate_Admission.
