Transfer applications consist of the following components:

The Common Application

The Common App has several parts, and requires a personal statement essay, and must be submitted by the applicable date. There is also a Common Application Supplement, with a unique essay to St. Mary’s, that should be submitted online with your application. Make sure to double check that your application has submitted correctly.

St. Mary's is now accepting a PDF version of the application for admission should you prefer not to use the Common Application.

Transcripts and Test Scores

Our application requires official transcripts of all college work; for applicants with less than 24 earned college credits, we ask that you also provide a final high school transcript. In terms of standardized tests, St. Mary’s College takes the SAT Reasoning or ACT exam scores. Scores should be sent directly from the testing agency. College Board (CEEB) code is 5601, and our ACT college code is 1736. SAT Subject Tests are not required but may be submitted for consideration.

We also require a Statement of Good Standing from the most recent college attended or a College Report.

Letters of Recommendation

We ask that you submit a letter of recommendation from a college professor. For any questions about this part of the process, please contact our office.

Application Fee

An application fee of $50.00 is required to process your application. The fee may be submitted online via credit card in the payment section of your application. Please note that the college will not receive your application for review until this section is complete.
