 Application and Registration 

Taking courses through Saint Mary’s University is a two step process consisting of application to the University and registration for courses.

For admission requirements please refer to our Apply Online section.

Once accepted to the university, students are now able to register for courses online through the Banner Self-Service system.

For new students, a student ID number (example: A00000000) will be included in your acceptance package with a Personal Identification Number (PIN) to access the Banner Self-Service system.

Please Note: Students are advised to consult the current Academic Calendar for course descriptions and information concerning course prerequisites.

Courses historically taught over the academic year are now split into 2 parts and students must register for both parts . These courses are identified by the section letters XX and YY. Extension courses are identified by an X or Y preceding the two letter suffix in the course number, eg. XDA and YDA etc.


X and Y = 6 Credit Hours (Full credit)
WW and WX = Web Courses
Note: Credits have been replaced by credit hours
.1 = 3 credit hours (half credit)
.2 = 3 credit hours (half credit)
Students registering for an X course MUST register in the Y course of the same number, e.g. Hist 2340.XDA and Hist 2340.YDA
