Saints Promise

Our Promise to you, Saint...

We believe that students who make an investment in career planning have more successful outcomes.  As a cohort of Saints Promise students, you have the opportunity to:

  • purposely engage with your faculty advisors to connect your academic program to your career goals
  • meet potential employers to learn the needs of the economy
  • get advice from Saint Martin’s alumni
  • participate in activities designed to help you learn where your talents and interests are
  • complete an internship to gain valuable experience, and more….

We are confident that when you follow these steps, you will have a successful outcome.  If you do not secure employment or graduate school within six months of Commencement, after completing the terms of the Saints Promise opt-in form, Saint Martin’s will guarantee a three-month paid internship or tuition-free enrollment to a Saint Martin's graduate program* for one semester**.

*Three-year Saints Promise students will only be eligible for tuition-free enrollment into a graduate program; they will not be eligible for the three-month paid internship
**Terms and conditions apply.
