Degree: Fitness Trainer
Graduation Year: 2020

Attending the University of Saint Mary my first year of college brought me something new, and painfully sweet. The teachers were very passionate about their jobs, they wanted their students to major in the exact same categories that they did. There was nothing better than watching these people love their classes that they taught, and care that students actually wanted to take them. Personally their love for everything to be exactly the way they wanted it made it harder. My theology class was the toughest on me, I was lost and I couldn't find a way for help. When I brought this up with my professor I was referred to the Academic Research Center, or another student . How could I possibly figure out the best way to write a good solidified paper when the knowledge that I wanted was in reference from another persons understanding. With little to few guidelines and rules on how to write these papers I panicked and I withdrew from the class, but before I did I had a sit down with my professor. My professor talked with me and explained the things that I felt would never be in my comprehension, but unfortunately the paper was already signed and all I had to do was walk out of the meeting room. If you want someone who takes their jobs serious, and only expect the best that they know personally possible then University of Saint Mary is the school for you. Being a private school however, things may then tend to be over priced as you can see that when money is tight the loans will sky rocket. I needed my mother to sign a parent loan inside of the boundaries of the contract with the school still after receiving a $48,000 scholarship to attend. We would be just a little under 100,000 dollars in dues owed to the school had I not been transferring to the University of Kansas. I recommend this school to anyone who would love to have a passionate professor take them through the curriculum of the school the correct way. Then in the case of money being tight and not enough financial income, I would not recommend this school because the over pricing to be called a private is too hard on financial needs of families and students.

Degree: MBA in Healthcare Management
Graduation Year: 2018

I chose the University of Saint Mary's because of the affordability factor. I am currently a student enrolled in their online MBA program that is specifically catered to health car management. I find that the courses very informative and gives me the drive to push myself and my abilities all while I work full time and take care of my family. When I graduate I will have the confidence needed to begin my new career.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2018

The University of Saint Mary has so far exceeded my expectations. The initial discussions with the entrance counselor was extremely helpful in guiding me to what I wanted to do. The classes I have taken so far have been wonderful. The professors are available to answer questions and help out when needed. The curriculum and grading is fair and I would recommend this school for an online MBA program.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

The graduate program is excellent and the staff at the satellite campus is fantastic. There are repeated issues regarding paperwork mistakes at the main campus which is stressful. It is also difficult to contact supporting staff at the main campus to fix these mistakes. It is a challenging but good program.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros: The staff members are easily accessible so you will always have someone to answer a question for you or to assist you with an issue. The information provided before and after registration is a bit overwhelming, but the staff simplifies it for you and calls to explain better. The graduate program is very affordable and doesn't require you to spend unnecessary money on entrance testing. Cons: For me, there are no cons and I'm not saying this because I am an online student. I am unable to give a full review on the school's campus due to my distance.
