FastTrack to Grad School

The FastTrack to Grad School program allows qualified students direct access to a quality graduate education in areas we do not offer on our campus. Sometimes, this means early access – as in 3+1 or 3+2 programs that actually allow you to start grad school when you are still an undergraduate at STAC, and this usually means that you save money by paying our undergraduate tuition and not someone else’s graduate tuition.


Our Graduate School Partners

Le Moyne College Occupational Therapy Program

Le Moyne College will save up to three seats a year for qualified students who are accepted into their program. This is a 4+2 program, meaning that you will complete your STAC degree, including some important prerequisite courses for this program, and then begin your work at Le Moyne after graduation.  Occupational Therapy is a growing career option for anyone who wants to help people cope with physical challenges that prevent them from doing some everyday things.

New York University Silver School of Social Work

The New York University Silver School of Social Work and St. Thomas Aquinas College partnered to create a program which allows qualified students to complete a B.S in Psychology and a Master of Social Work in five years, rather than the usual six years of full-time study.

NYU Silver offers all courses on the St. Thomas Aquinas campus in Maguire Hall. For more information about NYU Silver, contact Dr. Susan Marell, visit the NYU Silver Rockland webpage, or email the Rockland campus at [email protected].

New York Chiropractic College

St. Thomas Aquinas College has established a program with New York Chiropractic College (NYCC) leading to the completion of both a B.S. degree in Biology and Doctor of Chiropractic degree. Students follow the STAC biology curriculum for the first three years. In the fourth year, students transfer to NYCC where they will complete the STAC requirements for the biology degree while concurrently completing the first year of the chiropractic program. After successful completion of the required number of transfer credits, students may apply for the bachelor’s degree from STAC.
