Meet Your Counselor

Admission Counselors

Your admissions counselor really knows what it means to be a Saint Mary's student. They can answer all your questions - or find the answers for you. You can call them, email them, or meet with them during a campus visit. 

You can also contact us at admission@smumn.edu.
