New Student Orientation and Registration

Undergraduate Students

New undergraduate students admitted to St. Thomas University must meet with the faculty advisor of their respective academic program to select and register for classes. Upon receiving admission to St. Thomas University, new students are required to submit a $200 tuition deposit in order to secure their seat for the upcoming semester. Upon submission of the tuition deposit, an admission counselor will contact you to schedule your advising session with a faculty member from your selected academic program. Your faculty advisor will provide you with information regarding your academic program and assist you in creating an academic plan that will set you on track to graduate as soon as possible.
