School’s Comments: 

Institution: Founded and sponsored by the Benedictine Sisters of Annunciation Monastery, the University of Mary is the nation’s most serious, affordable, Catholic university, teaching in accordance with the magisterium of the Church. With 58 undergraduate majors, 18 graduate degrees and four doctoral programs, and a stellar academic reputation, the University of Mary continues record-breaking enrollment and campus growth, offering a rich sacramental culture where students flock to daily Mass, adoration and our beautiful fieldstone grotto dedicated to the Blessed Mother. With 17 NCAA sports, a beautiful campus in Rome, semesters in Peru and other international learning opportunities, we have a robust “Catholic Scholars” program with eligible Catholic high-school seniors receiving free room and board, 24/7 dining, online and distance learning at satellite campuses, and the innovative “Year-Round Campus” option, allowing students to earn a bachelor’s degree in 2.6 years or a master’s in four — less time, less cost, less debt.

Faculty: In accordance with North Dakota state law, U Mary does not maintain a record of the religious affiliation of employees.

Theologians’ Oath: Theology professors take the “Oath of Fidelity” at the time of their hiring.
