Additional Information

Saint Mary’s University (SMU) of Minnesota – Winona campus offers ‘Rolling Admission’ to students applying for admission. This means that as long as there is space and time available for students to be accepted and enrolled the application process will remain open.

For international students applying from outside the U.S., there are practical issues that will affect how late the applicant will be able to complete the admission process and arrive on campus in time to start classes. Examples of such issues are: time for students to gather and send all required application documents; time to review completed application file; amount of time required to obtain a student visa interview at a U.S. consulate or embassy overseas; length of time required for visa issuance; arranging international travel to SMU. Therefore, the sooner a student submits all required application documents the better.
