Secure Your Place in Highly Selective, In-Demand Programs 

Due to high demand and limited enrollment capacity, admission to some Mary programs is highly competitive. That’s why we created our Early Assurance and Priority Admissions programs. 

  • Our Early Assurance program is designed for incoming freshmen.
  • Our Priority Admissions program is for students who have already completed 60-89 credits.
  • Requirements for each program are included in the accordions below.

If you are a student who qualifies, you can apply to these programs immediately following your acceptance at Mary — fast-tracking your access to a seat in a competitive program with capped enrollment.
