A Job After Graduation, Guaranteed

Guaranteed Job Program™

Thomas sets itself apart from other colleges with our Guaranteed Job Program™. We’re so confident in the relevance of our students’ education that we can guarantee they will find a job within six months of graduation.

In this one-of-a-kind program, you’ll work with faculty, staff, and employer partners throughout your college career to take steps that have been proven to lead to success in the job search. If you do your part and still don’t land a job related to your major within six months of graduation, we’ll either make your monthly federally subsidized student loan payments for you for up to a year, or we’ll let you start a Thomas master’s degree program for free.
