Outside Scholarships

Per NCAA Division III regulations, students who intend on playing varsity sports at Saint Mary’s are precluded from receiving any scholarships based on athletic participation, ability or leadership in any sport which is also an NCAA sport. Varsity athletes should check with the Financial Aid Office regarding any outside scholarships or awards to ensure the terms of the scholarship will not interfere with the student’s ability to participate in varsity athletics.
