St. Mary’s College of Maryland, designated the state’s honors college, is an independent public institution in the liberal arts tradition. We promote scholarship and creativity by challenging our students to achieve academic excellence through close relationships with faculty, classroom activities, and experiential learning. Our faculty and staff foster intellectual, social, and ethical development within a community dedicated to diversity and accessibility. We provide students with opportunities to understand and serve local, national, and global communities and to accomplish social change.
We accept applications from first-year students and transfer students for the fall and spring semester. The admissions process is slightly different for first-years, transfer, and international students, so follow our links for more information about any supplemental requirements.
