At first glance, the sticker price of a college education may seem out of reach. However, when you apply for financial aid you will discover there is often a significant difference between the sticker price and what a student actually pays out of pocket. Financial aid is the bridge between what a family is able to pay for education and what it costs to attend.
More than 90 percent of all new students are awarded financial aid directly from St. Thomas to help make the education we offer more financially accessible. Merit-based scholarships are awarded after a student is admitted and their academic credentials and other qualifications are reviewed. Students will also be considered for need-based aid after filing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
