What Students Are Saying

3.68 Average Rating
The classes vary by majors and professors but the major of the classes are of high rigor. You need to really stay on top of your stuff or else you will fall behind. It is very important to do all the reading and homework that the professors give because most of the professors base their exams on the readings and the lectures.

The classes are small, about 30 people to a class, so there is a lot of one on one interaction with the professors. The classes are difficult but with effort you can pass. There is an honors society that helps increase the academic rigor for students that want that.
Lauren from Elk Grove, CA
The classes require regular attendance and serious effort. The teachers do care about each student, though, and offer to meet during office hours for extra help. SMC also provides an academic advisor, writing center, and tutors if needed.

The Academic program at Saint Mary's is on of a kind. Aside from getting a major they really make sure you receive a fully rounded education through their diversity requirements and Jan term. They also offer a lot of tutoring and assistance in order to make sure every student will succeed.
Maxwell from Concord, CA
The academic program at Saint Mary's is spectacular. Be prepared for a brain exercises in the Seminar department, wonderful science labs, and intelligent passionate teachers who will know your name, face, and probably favorite color. I have never been disappointed in a class and love attending the lectures.
A Happy Student
