Accepted Students

Congratulations! You’re on your way to becoming an integral part of our vibrant, active community of thinkers and doers, athletes and leaders, researchers, and scholars.

If you choose to attend STAC, you may become student government president or editor of our college newspaper. Maybe you’ll study at Oxford with our Honors Program, build houses in Nicaragua or lend a helping hand on South Dakota’s Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. Or maybe you’ll meet your new best friend, learn to sing or host your own campus radio show. The possibilities — and opportunities to discover yourself and the world around you — are endless.  No matter what you do, you’ll be part of a special community that will encourage you and help you become the Best. You. Ever.

Ready to Commit to St. Thomas Aquinas College?

If you’re ready to submit your deposit to attend St. Thomas Aquinas College, you can do so by sending your admissions deposit of $100 as a commuting student or $250 as a resident student. You will begin receiving additional information for deposited students.  This deposit will be credited towards your financial obligation to the College. It is non-refundable after May 1, 2018 for fall applicants.

Send Your Deposit
Pay online using our Online Credit Card Payment* site.  From the "Make a One-Time Payment" section, select STAC Admissions from the dropdown box and follow the prompts to complete your deposit payment online.

Use our Reservation Fee Form if you're paying by check or money order.

*Students submitting deposits for special programs (Honors and Pathways) have to be admitted to those programs, in addition to being admitted to the College. Submitting a deposit does not automatically enroll a student in the special program. Please contact the Admissions Office with any questions, 845-398-4100.

Information for Deposited Students


The Office of Student Activities will send you information about the Orientation Programs (typically in May for students entering in the fall).  You will be able to select one session that works best for you.  Orientation is the first stepping-stone in your transition to St. Thomas Aquinas College. During your orientation program, you will have the opportunity to review your schedule, meet current and incoming STAC students, receive your Spartan ID Card and much more.
