Types of Aid

Claire Yancy and fellow students

Your education is one of your most valuable assets. A degree from Saint Mary's College is one investment that will reward you for the rest of your life. The values, leadership skills, and confidence you develop will continue to grow over your lifetime.

We know the cost of a college education can be overwhelming and often requires families to make sacrifices to provide this gift of education. We encourage you to explore the many financing options Saint Mary's has to offer as you make this important decision.

"Because of a change in my family's financial situation, I required more financial aid to be able to return to Saint Mary's my sophomore year. I spoke with a Financial Aid staff member who helped me through the process of getting more aid . . . the College provided me with enough aid to send me to study in Rome, fulfilling one of my many dreams."                  -Claire Yancy
