St. Thomas Aquinas College, A School for Future Leaders

St. Thomas Aquinas College (STAC) provides the resources needed for a successful future — with a faculty focused on educating, mentoring and supporting all students as they prepare for the careers of today, tomorrow, and in the future. STAC is a vibrant, independent, four-year liberal arts college in the NYC Metropolitan area, just 45 minutes North of Manhattan, giving students quick access to learning, cultural, internship, and career opportunities in one of the world’s most exciting cities.

STAC’s 72-acre campus provides a safe, welcoming place for students to study at the undergraduate and graduate level and offers over 100 majors, minors, and specializations in the School of Arts & Social Sciences, the School of Business, the School of Education, and the School of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM). STAC also provides students with the opportunity to participate in college athletics at the Division II, varsity, club, or intramural level.

The College is committed to providing a top-notch experience for its students and making higher education accessible at an affordable price — offering scholarships amounting to at least $50,000 over 4 years.

Did You Know?

St. Thomas Aquinas College has waived the SAT/ACT test requirement for Fall 2022, in response to SAT and ACT testing sites closing across the country because of COVID-19. The College is now test-optional, meaning students may submit test scores if they have them, but the College will also consider applications from students without test scores. The lack of test scores will not affect the College’s evaluation of the student’s application.

Freshman or transfer students alike become an integral part of a vibrant community of thinkers and doers, athletes and leaders, researchers and scholars — the opportunities are limitless!

STAC offers graduate programs in education, business and criminal justice. Students get more than a sense of accomplishment; they get to advance their career and earning potential.

Not Sure What to Earn a Degree in?

Among the 100+ programs STAC offers, why not consider a degree in Therapeutic Recreation, Hospitality Management, Accounting, Marketing, History, or English? And what about the Sciences — Forensic Science, Biology, Chemistry or Physics? There’s a wide selection to choose from!
