    One College. Two Worlds

    It may sound cliché, but STAC’s location really is the best of both worlds. On the one hand, we’re a safe suburban campus ideal for focused study. On the other hand, we’re a mere 20 miles from New York City, one of the world’s most exciting cities.

Cost & Aid


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.

St. Thomas Aquinas College prides itself on the partnership it makes with our students. College costs are high and the national average for private college tuition costs continues to go up. Families continue to look for options that enable their student to obtain a private college education at an affordable price — you have found the affordable option.

More than 85% of our students receive scholarships and grants as part of their financial aid package. The Net Price Calculator can be used to determine just what scholarships and grants you would be eligible for as an incoming student.

We will also provide you with a financial aid shopping sheet prior to your enrollment decision — this sheet shows you exactly what your total costs are and how your scholarships and grants reduce your cost down to your net price.

You are also welcome to visit with the financial aid team.  We’ll partner with you to keep your costs down and we’ll look for outside sources to help you fund your education. You just need to take the first step after you apply to the College — complete the FAFSA. We’ll do the rest!
