What makes USM unique?

Since 1923, Saint Mary has been a leader in liberal arts education. Today, USM is well known and routinely recognized for its dedication to academic excellence

We make a quality Catholic education affordable: 98 percent of our students receive some form of financial aid, and, as an international student, you'll automatically qualify for some institutional aid.

USM offers specialized training and majors in high-demand career fields such as health care, technology, and education. You'll graduate ready for the work force or  for future graduate/doctoral level progression.



The Saint Mary Advantage

  • A low student-to-teacher ratio means small classes with teachers who know your name and want to see you succeed

  • USM's mission includes the university's Global Studies Institute, an organization that promotes the international exchange of ideas and shared experiences with countries and cultures from around the world

  • Enjoy a small-town feel just minutes away from the KC Metro area
