• Zaragoza, our orientation program for new undergraduate students at St. Mary’s University, is moving online for Summer 2020 due to COVID-19. While we will miss seeing you in person, we have put together an online course for this summer that will be followed by an experience Aug. 3-7. Check your email for more information.

All undergraduate students who are new to St. Mary’s University for the Fall 2020 Semester — freshmen, transfers and undergraduate international students — are required to complete an online orientation course. In order for us to offer you the best level of service — including preparation of your course registration materials — you are required to sign up in advance so we can enroll you in the proper course.


How to Register for Zaragoza

Once you have been officially accepted to St. Mary’s University and have paid your enrollment deposit in Gateway, you will receive a notification to your St. Mary’s University email account when you are able to register for Zaragoza.

Due to COVID-19, we are building the online courses as quickly as we can. You will receive an email once your course becomes available.


Orientation Registration Fee

There is a one-time Zaragoza student registration fee that is billed to the student’s account along with tuition charges. The registration fee is $225.


What to Have Available for Individual Advising Appointments

Once you complete the initial online modules, you will be eligible to schedule an individual online appointment to meet with an Academic Adviser. During that meeting, you will finalize your Fall semester course schedule. Please have available a photo ID, any transcripts, CLEP exam scores, AP exam scores, health records, etc., that have not already been submitted to the Office of Undergraduate Admission or the Student Health Center.
