Veterans Admissions

St. Thomas has a long-standing commitment to supporting veterans. From academic advising to career assistance, you'll find a welcoming and inclusive environment at St. Thomas, where you can thrive academically and professionally.

We believe that the answers to the world's complex problems live within people who have yet to discover all they can accomplish. Through class projects, internships and other practical application opportunities, you will be prepared to make a positive impact in a career, grad school or wherever you go from here.

Veterans Apply as Transfer Students

Due to the college credits that veterans have received from their military service, veterans must apply as transfer students. We accept transfer students on a rolling basis throughout the year until our class is full, so there are no specific application deadlines.
