All undergraduate students who are new to St. Mary’s University — freshmen, transfers and undergraduate international students — are required to participate in Zaragoza.

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 be enrolled in the Zaragoza online course. The course opens on May 3 and you will receive an email with further instructions.

The second part of Zaragoza is in person. Space in each program is limited; you must register for one of the following dates:

  • Z1: June 14
  • Z2: June 15
  • Z3: June 16
  • Z4: August 11
  • Z5: August 12
  • Z6: August 13

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 $250.

What to Have Available for Individual Advising Appointments

Once you complete the 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, and copies of 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.
