Continuing Education and Professional Program students may be working professionals who attend evening classes, adults returning to college, qualified local high school students, or students desiring to change careers or pursue academic work for personal enrichment. The faculty and staff at St. Mary’s College of Maryland have a commitment to help these students in their educational pursuits, and they welcome persons of all ages to the St. Mary’s classrooms.

Parking regulations are available at the Public Safety Office. All students are strongly encouraged to read the regulations.
Failure to register vehicles and display the required permit will result in a parking citation and a fine of $25 or more for each offense. The vehicles of persistent violators will be impounded and will not be released until all fines have been paid and the vehicles have been properly registered.

Monthly Payment Plan via CASHNet
A monthly installment plan is available to help ease the cost of attending college. There is a $45 enrollment fee. The amount you chose is spread into 5 monthly payments due on the 5th of each month.
Electronic Check (E-Check) Payments via CASHNet
There is no fee to make an e-check payment. The payment is simply withdrawn from your checking account the following day. After selecting the e-check payment option online, you will enter your bank’s 9-digit routing number and your bank account number which are found on the bottom of your checks.
Credit Card Payments via CASHNet
For a convenience fee of 2.75% of the transaction, you may pay your tuition with a credit card (the entire amount of the convenience fee goes directly to CashNet, a third-party payment processing company and does not benefit the College). MasterCard, Discover, Diners Club, and American Express are accepted; however, CashNet does not accept VISA cards due to the restrictions imposed by VISA.
The tuition refund for credit and enrichment courses is computed from the day on which the Office of the Registrar receives the student’s written request to drop the course(s). Students should submit a refund request form to the Business Office at that time. Mandatory fees are non-refundable as of the first day of classes. Enrichment-course refunds are computed as follows:
- Before the first class: 100%
- Before the second class: 50%
- After the second class: 0%
If the College cancels a course, students are granted full refunds.
