Virtual START


Thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate the coronavirus pandemic. As the coronavirus situation evolves, we will continue to update this page. Check back for regular updates.

In alignment with the new guidelines surrounding social distancing, Maryville will offer your START experience in a fully virtual format. Our transition to a virtual experience will provide you the opportunity to register for classes with a Life Coach, connect with the campus community, and get your questions answered. We are thrilled to welcome you to Saints Nation!


Maryville President Dr. Lombardi


We will reach out so that you can build your personalized virtual START experience that fits your needs, including the following:

One-on-One Life Coach Appointment

This is an exciting online experience you will gain access to prior to START, which provides information on many of our resources. You can earn new badges throughout the summer, all while you get comfortable using our Learning Management System.
