Important Announcement 

The 2020-21 Free Application for Federal Student Aid - FAFSA is now available. Starting October 1st you can now complete your 2020-21 application for the 2020-21 Academic year. The FAFSA form is available to students and parents to complete through the myStudentAid mobile app and the fafsa.gov website.

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.   

The 2019-20 FAFSA application was made available as of October 1, 2018. 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 2019-20 FAFSA, tax filers should refer to their 2017 federal tax return.

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.
