My Notification of Aid
St. Thomas Aquinas College provides prospective students with a Net Price Calculator (NPC). This NPC is for new prospective students that are either current high school students, transfer students, or high school graduates who have not attended a prior college.
The NPC will provide you with an estimate of your scholarship, need based grant, federal grant, and NYS grants that you may be eligible for upon entry to the college. The NPC also provides you with an estimate of the total costs of college as either a commuting student or a resident student.
The St. Thomas tuition cost for 2012-13, for example, is $24,610. The estimated cost for a new commuter student are higher, however, as we try to estimate your transportation, personal housing costs, personal expenses, miscellaneous expenses, and books and fees. The estimate for those costs in addition to tuition are $7,400, bringing the estimated cost for a commuter student to: $32,010
All colleges are required to estimate these additional costs. Some may estimate them to be substantially lower, and others may be higher. Of the $7,400 estimate in our projection, only $1,000 are estimated costs payable to the College. The remaining $6,400 are what we estimate to be your personal expenses, personal housing costs, miscellaneous expenses and transportation.
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 or subsidized loans. We accept students regardless of their finances and we work to create a financial aid package that helps make your education affordable.

Financial Aid Opportunities
Financial Aid includes scholarships, grants, awards, loans and work study programs -- all but scholarships are determined by FAFSA results. Scholarships at St. Thomas are based on your application materials. There is no separate application to be considered for our scholarships. Make sure you include our school code on your FAFSA application (002832). Learn more about the FASFA process.
Applying For 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".
