Did You Know?

St. Thomas Aquinas College has waived the SAT/ACT test requirement for Fall 2022. The College is currently 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.
