Did You Know?

This year because of extenuating circumstances resulting from those families affected by the COVID-19 pandemic either directly or indirectly, St. Thomas Aquinas College has established special COVID-19 Relief scholarships amounting to at least $50,000 over 4 years and has waived the SAT/ACT test requirement for Fall 2021. 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. You are encouraged to apply to St. Thomas Aquinas College, whether you’re starting your search or whether you are starting the application process! STAC wants to make a college education accessible to everyone!

Freshman or transfer students alike become an integral part of an active community of thinkers and doers, athletes and leaders, researchers and scholars. Maybe a student becomes a government president or editor of STAC’s college newspaper. Maybe a student studies at The University of Oxford through the College’s Honors Program, builds houses in Nicaragua or lends a helping hand on South Dakota’s Pine Ridge Indian Reservation — the opportunities are limitless!
