A college education requires a significant investment of time and money but returns tremendous value.  This value cannot be simply measured by graduates’ employment rates or median earnings.  Value must include consideration for the personal, intellectual, social and spiritual growth that occurs during college.  While it is difficult to quantify that type of growth, it does happen and it is priceless.  We are confident in the value of a St. Thomas education, but recognize paying for that education may be a real challenge for many students and their parents.  We are committed to helping students overcome that challenge and to making a St. Thomas education affordable.
