For those already admitted, please confirm your enrollment.

Apply without including test scores

If you’re applying for admission to Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota, you are no longer required to submit your ACT or SAT test scores as part of your application. Saint Mary’s University has adopted a test optional admission policy beginning fall 2020. This means you choose whether or not you want to include your scores.

Visit Campus

In response to the latest social distancing guidelines from the CDC and in an effort to keep our current and prospective Cardinal family safe, all on- and off-campus events have been canceled.

Though we wish you could experience our beautiful campus and welcoming community in person, we are excited to offer Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota video tours, virtual meetings with admission counselors, and Zoom webinar events for a customizable, in-depth look at what Saint Mary’s has to offer you.
