First Year Students


Fall Update

In keeping with our intent to bring students back for the fall semester, our leadership team and COVID Task Force have developed a plan to begin in-person classes on August 10. Because many students attend classes across our tri-campus community, aligning our academic calendar with Notre Dame and Holy Cross is imperative. Therefore, we have decided to begin in-person classes on Monday, August 10, forego fall break, and complete the semester before Thanksgiving Break. We are deeply committed to ensuring the well-being of our campus community, and we will require that additional protective measures be put into place on campus to enhance the safety of all campus constituencies, and especially vulnerable populations.

Please understand, this plan may change. It depends on the status of the pandemic in our region, as well as on access to enough testing and diagnostics to meet our needs, among other complex factors. We look forward to working as a tri-college community to address these challenges. 


You matter to us. We’ll make sure you know every step of our admission process. Ask questions. We will provide you with individual attention from the time you show interest in Saint Mary’s until you step foot on campus as a bright-eyed first year student.
