Freshmen Students

We evaluate each student on the strength of his or her high school record, test scores, writing sample, and any other supporting information included with his or her application. No application fee is required. A campus visit and appointment with an admissions counselor are encouraged although not required.

Admissions Requirements

The parts of the application that are required for new freshmen are:

  • St. Thomas application
  • Official ACT or SAT test scores
  • Official high school transcript
  • Writing sample
  • Letters of recommendation are optional
Application Deadlines

UST reviews applications on an ongoing basis beginning on or around October first each year. Therefore, we do not have an application deadline or early decision or early action process. We accept students until the class fills, so applying in the fall of a student’s senior year is encouraged.
