2022-2023 SGPP Catalog and Handbook
Electronic Version, May 2022
This catalog contains information relating to the Schools of Graduate and Professional Programs of Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota which offers bachelor degree completion, master degree, graduate certificate, specialist degree, and doctoral degree programs to adult students.
This electronic catalog is neither a contract nor an offer of a contract. The information it contains was accurate at the time of publication. Saint Mary’s University publishes and prints its catalog annually. The PDF of the catalog matches the printed catalog. The electronic version is the most up-to-date version.
Fees, deadlines, academic requirements, courses, certificate and degree programs, and other matters described in this catalog may change without notice. Not all courses are offered each academic year, and faculty assignments may change.
Students are encouraged to familiarize themselves with Saint Mary’s University policies and procedures. Every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of the information in the printed Schools of Graduate and Professional Programs Catalog and Student Handbook; however, when the printed and online versions differ, the official version is the online edition.
Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota (SMUMN) reserves the right to make changes as needed to its programs, policies, rules, regulations, procedures, fees, tuition, housing rates, organizational structure, and faculty and staff through the established University processes. Every effort will be made to give as much advance notice as possible to all concerned stakeholders, including enrolled students.
SMUMN reserves the right to modify or eliminate programs that are described in this catalog. In the event such an action is taken, students affected will be advised by the University of the options available to them to complete their degrees.
SMUMN reserves the right to limit enrollments and to change requirements for enrollment in both programs and courses as necessary. When enrollment limitations are imposed, every reasonable effort will be made to provide alternatives for students affected.
This catalog has attempted to present information about the University for the 2022-2023 academic year as accurately and completely as possible. It is the responsibility of each student to be aware of and understand university regulations and policy as published.
Students may have only one catalog on record for their degree requirements. Students are initially under the regulations of the catalog in force at the time of admission to Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota. However, if degree requirements change, a student may choose a later catalog. Changing to a subsequent catalog compels students to conform to the degree requirements of that catalog. Choosing a new catalog means accepting all changes in that catalog. Students should contact Student Central if they wish to change their academic catalog of record. Students are encouraged to work with their program director in making these decisions.
Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota does not guarantee the award of a degree or academic credit for satisfactory completion of any course of study or program to students enrolled in them. The award of degrees and academic credit is conditioned upon satisfaction of all applicable requirements at the time of such award, including compliance with all applicable university policies, student conduct codes, and student life policies.
