Apply for Financial Aid
St. Thomas Aquinas only requires the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form. The FAFSA process provides the College with the results in the calculation of your EFC (Expected Family Contribution). Your EFC is the amount of money that the federal government believes your family can contribute to your education. The St. Thomas Aquinas Code for the FAFSA is "002832" and the NYS TAP code is "0830".
If you would like to visit campus again, or for the first time, contact us to set up a visit. We’d be happy to give you a tour, sit down to discuss your financial aid package, or set you up with the right people on campus to answer your questions.
