A note from the Executive Director of Admissions and Financial Aid

Dear Parent,

I know it’s hard to believe that your student is getting ready to go off to college. Your focus is split between celebrating the milestones of high school and the big decisions about college. You’ve probably been discussing whether your son or daughter will be drawn to a large or small school, a metropolitan or rural environment, or a place that is close to home or far away. You’re evaluating academic interests and skills and looking for that perfect fit.

It’s a lot to think about.

As the mother of a college student and a college graduate and as an experienced admission and financial aid professional, I know there are many details to consider and plans to be made. I also know it’s easier to handle it all with some help. Please reach out to the admissions and financial aid counselors who can assist your family with questions you have about St. Thomas and the college search process. You can find these individuals by using our Locate Your Counselor tool. 

We produce an electronic newsletter full of tips and advice just for parents. If you would like to receive this e-newsletter, simply sign up below.
