Cardinal App Day

August 9, 2019 - 9:30 a.m. - 2 p.m.

Cardinal App Day offers students and families the tools needed to make the college search process easier and the opportunity to explore Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota.

We will answer your questions about private scholarship opportunities, the financial aid process, student activities, and more.

Students will practice their writing skills and meet with an admission counselor to walk through the admission process. Parents will learn more about affordability and the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

Students and families will also be able to tour campus, and students can even fill out their application with the help of the admission staff during the event.
