St. Mary’s Seminary & University is the first educational institution in the United States with the right to grant academic degrees by the authority of the Holy See, first authorized in 1822 by Pope Pius VII at the request of Archbishop Ambrose Maréchal, S.S., third Archbishop of Baltimore.

The statutes and privileges of the Ecclesiastical Theological Faculty of St. Mary’s Seminary & University were recently renewed by the Holy See in 2010.
