Students Studying Outside

少交学费. Graduate Faster with Less Debt. Jump-Start Your Career.

Our 全年校园 (YRC) program adds even more value to a University of Mary education — already one of the most affordable among private universities nationwide.

By adding a full summer semester to the school year, 全年校园 makes it possible for you to get a bachelor’s degree in 2.6 years 和 a master’s degree in four years. You’ll graduate sooner 和 get a head start on your career — 和 your life.

The 全年校园 Advantage

全年校园 provides students with a significant financial advantage.

  • An independent analyst estimates the lifetime benefit to be over $320,000 for bachelor’s degree participantsover $600,000 for master’s participants — a combination of saved tuition, reduced debt, 和 an early start to career earnings. 

But there’s more to the program than cost savings. With 全年校园:

  • You’ll be supported. A dedicated faculty member is assigned to mentor each student in the program.
  • You’ll be immersed in a rich educational community. 全年校园 brings prominent guest speakers 和 visiting scholars from around the country to Mary. 
  • 你会旅行. You can still take advantage of Mary’s many study abroad opportunities, 和 all students take a trip during the summer semester — everything from hiking in the Badl和s to visiting the Canadian Museum for Human Rights in Winnipeg. 
  • You can still participate in Division II athletics. The NCAA has given the program its stamp of approval. 
  • 你仍然可以工作. Full-time students can work up to 20 hours a week for the entire semester, earning up to $3,000.
  • You’ll still get a vacation. 全年校园 participants have seven weeks of vacation during the year, in addition to several scheduled holidays. 
  • You’ll have flexibility. If you start the program 和 find it isn’t the best fit for you, no problem — we’ll work with you on a degree plan that meets your needs. 
  • 你会玩得很开心的. Unlike the sleepy vibe at most campuses, Mary is alive with things to do in the summer. And nothing compares to the beauty of a North Dakota summer. 
Dean of the School of Business Karel Sovak with Year-round Campus student Karly Palczewski.

As a participant 和 pioneer student of the University of Mary’s 全年校园 program, I was able to earn my Bachelor of Science degree in just over two years. 每一节课, 活动, 和 event I attended showed me how to push myself out of my comfort zone, go the extra mile 和 do everything in life with compassion.

Activities through 全年校园

全年校园: 学费 和 金融援助

奖学金 和 other financial aid still apply with 全年校园. Because time to degree is shorter, tuition payment time is shorter. We help students 和 families through this process.

A student can complete the same rigorous, quality academic program in 2.6 years at the University of Mary 和 be serving in one of North Dakota’s 30,000个空缺职位, while other universities are graduating only 39 percent of their students in four years.
