SAN JUAN, PUERTO RICO
The city of San Juan is the largest capital in the Caribbean and the cultural heart of Puerto Rico. Immerse yourself in the unique culture of the island, stroll along the cobblestone streets of Old San Juan, relax on over 300 Caribbean beaches, or explore the many natural wonders of this island, like the tropical rainforest right outside the city.
Saint Mary's College has an affiliation with Spanish Studies Abroad which oversees the Puerto Rico program. Students study at the Universidad del Sagrado Corazon in the heart of the city. The University of the Sacred Heart was founded in 1888 and is a Catholic, independent, co-educational and non-profit institution. The Universidad del Sagrado Corazon is based on the teachings and guidance in ecumenical mission of the Catholic Church, encourages and facilitates spiritual, moral, intellectual, social and physical integral development of their students.
All programs require dual applications. The online application for fall and academic year terms to Saint Mary's College is due March 1st, with decisions announced by March 15th. Spring applications are due October 1st to Saint Mary's, with decisions announced October 15th. Accepted students should then complete the online application to our partner, Spanish Studies Abroad.
The Puerto Rico Program offers three enrollment options: summer, semester, and academic year. Saint Mary's students typically enroll for fall or spring semester of their sophomore year and pay Saint Mary's tuition, room, and board. The regular fall academic program in San Juan begins in mid-August and ends by late-December. The spring semester runs from late-January- late May. The summer program comprises two three and a half week terms offering an intensive academic experience with a rich cultural component. Students can earn four credits per summer term.
