St. Thomas Aquinas College is committed to making and keeping your education affordable. In the continued effort to partner with your education, STAC has elected to participate in the New York State Enhanced Tuition Award Program for the 2017-2018 academic year!

New York State Budget recently passed the NYS Enhanced Tuition Award (ETA) which may directly impact students who attend STAC. Visit our NYS Enhanced Tuition Award page to learn more. 

Important Announcement

The 2018-19 FAFSA application is available as of October 1, 2017. The IRS Data Retrieval Tool (DRT) which allows students and parents to electronically transfer federal tax return information into the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is available. To provide financial information on the 2018-2019 FAFSA, tax filers should refer to their 2016 federal tax return.

For those who are filing 2017-18 FAFSA the IRS Data Retrieval Tool is currently down. At this time, we do not know when the function will become available again.To provide financial information on the 2017-2018 FAFSA, tax filers should refer to their 2015 federal tax return and manually enter the tax information on the FAFSA. We apologize for the inconvenience. Please contact the Office of Financial Aid at 845-398-4097 for further information. 

St. Thomas Aquinas College is happy to partner with you to help you finance your education. That’s why 85% of our students receive some form of financial aid including scholarships, grants, awards, and subsidized loans. We accept students regardless of their finances and we work to create a financial aid package that helps make your education affordable.   

Our Financial Aid Checklist can help walk you through the process.  And our staff is available year-round to help you get all the information you need about qualifying for, applying for and receiving financial aid.  Our goal is to help you understand the financial aid process and make your college education affordable.
