Receive individualized attentionAverage class size of 18

At Saint Mary's, we believe in collaboration. Whether on campus or online, our small class sizes allow students to personally connect with peers and professors. You will be encouraged to ask questions, work together, and get involved in various projects. Faculty get to know each student by name so there is no getting lost in the shuffle. Most importantly, they become mentors and advisors, leading you toward academic and professional success.

Stay on track and on time

We place a high level of attention in helping you stay on track with your coursework. Where other students are taking on average over 5 years to graduate at public colleges and universities, Saint Mary's women are well in to their careers by then. That translates into $54,000 when you consider lost income and additional tuition.
