The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has changed some aspects of the St. Mary’s University admission process, but rest assured that the Office of Admission is dedicated to making your transition to college as smooth as possible. We’re eager to answer any questions you have about your application.
You can contact our Admission team at 210-436-3126 during normal business hours, Monday to Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. CST or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Find and connect with your designated Admission Counselor:
To help expedite the submission of required documents, please email PDF attachments to the Office of Admission at email@example.com. Unofficial transcripts will suffice for the review of your application.
How can I submit required documents?
Yes. In light of the complications for standardized testing as a result of COVID-19, St. Mary’s University has implemented a test-optional admission policy for entering first-time freshmen joining the University in Fall 2021. At the time of application, students can indicate if they wish to be considered as a test optional candidate. In lieu of test scores, students will be required to submit a resume.
Test optional candidates who have completed all application requirements will be considered for admission through a holistic review. Students who apply as test-optional are still eligible for academic merit scholarship consideration.
If you are interested in our test-optional application process, connect with your admission counselor.
Is St. Mary’s test-optional?
Yes, our team is committed to continue providing a personalized service to our students and families through video or phone calls.
Can I schedule a virtual appointment?
Out of an abundance of caution due to concerns regarding coronavirus, the Office of Admission has decided to temporarily postpone on-campus visits. We encourage prospective students and their families to join us for one of our daily Live Virtual Guided Tours where prospective students will have the chance to virtually walk around campus and get all of their questions answered by one of our student Diamondback Tour Guides.
Are campus visits available?
Yes, we offer a variety of ways for you and your family to visit the St. Mary’s campus virtually. Explore your virtual visit options or register for an upcoming information session.
