Congratulations on your acceptance to St. Mary’s University!
To assist in your transition to graduate study at St. Mary’s, we offer a required orientation program for all incoming masters and doctoral students. An online orientation course will introduce you to our institutional mission and heritage, policies and procedures, and student support services. You will learn the expectations for graduate level study and connect with fellow graduate students all before classes begin. In mid-July, you may expect an email with instructions on how to access the course, which should take about 2 to 3 hours to complete, before the first day of classes.
Additionally, we look forward to welcoming you on campus for the University Orientation for Graduate Students the evening of Monday, Aug. 14, 2017. For this on campus event, check-in will begin at 5 p.m. in the lobby of the University Center with the event set to begin at 5:30 p.m. You can plan for the program to conclude by 7:30 p.m. At this event, you will be introduced to the individuals and offices on campus that will support your studies. You will meet with your program director and other graduate students. Since your family members will be a critical source of support as you pursue your graduate degree, we invite them to join you at orientation.
Any questions may be directed to Director of Graduate Student Success, Anne Edmunds, Ed.D. by email or by phone at 210-436-3498.
We look forward to welcoming you to the St. Mary’s family!
