Highly Motivated Students Succeed Here

Discover how your dual enrollment courses can become college credits—and earn you automatic acceptance to Thomas College.

Early college options like dual enrollment can help you prepare for college, save money, and allow you to take on an exciting new level of academic challenge. At Thomas College, your promising future is within reach.

Dual Enrollment

If your high school participates in dual enrollment—through Thomas College or another accredited institution—you can earn credits toward a future bachelor’s degree at Thomas College while you’re still in high school. This means you can get an early start on your college degree, challenge yourself, and help cut the costs of an already-affordable college education.

If you earn 6 or more college credits through dual enrollment, you may be eligible for automatic acceptance to Thomas College. Those very credits can help you advance faster, too.

Need more encouragement? Check out Sophie O’Clair’s incredible journey. She earned her associate’s degree from Thomas College before she even graduated from high school, thanks to her early college coursework. Once at Thomas College full-time, she was able to earn a bachelor’s degree in just 3 semesters and graduate debt free.

“My favorite thing here is the staff. The professors, advisors, administrators, custodians, food staff, coaches, athletic trainers, and counselors all try so ridiculously hard for Thomas’s students. Regardless of what is going on, I can guarantee that I’ll feel safe, valued, and taken care of on and off campus.”
