Estimate Your Financial Aid

A Thomas College degree is not only a great value—it’s affordable, too. We offer generous merit scholarships, including:

  • Summa Cum Laude Scholarship: Renewable scholarships of $18,000 ($9,000 per semester) are awarded to first-time college students who meet the required GPA of 3.2 or above.
  • Cum Laude Scholarship: Renewable scholarships of $14,000 ($7,000 per semester) are awarded to first-time college students who meet the required GPA of 2.8-3.19.
  • Honoris Scholarship: Renewable scholarships of $10,000 ($5,000 per semester) are awarded to first-time college students who meet the required GPA of 2.40-2.79.

GPA based on a 4.0 scale. Prices based on resident student cost.

Domestic undergraduate students may also qualify for need-based financial aid, so we encourage you to complete your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to ensure that you are eligible for all the assistance available to you. You can view a preliminary estimate of federal, state, and institutional aid eligibility by using our Net Price Calculator.

View information for International Admissions or Transfer Admissions.

Submit your application for undergraduate admission. We accept the Thomas College Undergraduate Application, which takes about ten minutes to complete, or the Common Application. You can choose which one you’d like to complete; both are treated equally in our selection process.

Provide supporting documentation. This includes:

  • College Essay
  • School Report, including an Official High School Transcript. This should be submitted by your school.
  • Letter(s) of Recommendation. We require one but suggest two.
  • Optional: SAT and/or ACT Scores

Begin the financial aid process. When you apply, we’ll automatically consider you for merit-based scholarships. Students seeking financial assistance other than merit-based scholarships should file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and list Thomas College (Title IV code 002052) as an authorized recipient of your information. More information regarding financial assistance can be found here.
