Canadian Student Admission Requirements

COVID-19: Domestic student applications without exam results

Due to the effects of the COVID-19 outbreak, Saint Mary's University will work with schools and students by accepting the results that are given out by their schools and not require results of official exams if they will not be written this year. In recognition of the COVID-19 disruption in students’ lives, we will also consider how students have done in the previous year as well, ensuring a holistic approach that includes consideration of the impact of this unprecedented situation. The university is able to support an approach that is fair and equitable to ensure that the needs and unique circumstances of each student are considered for their benefit. Scans of transcripts/marks are acceptable at this time.
