After You Are Accepted
After You Are Accepted
After being accepted, the student will receive four important documents in the mail.
  1. An Acceptance Letter - This contains the UST student ID number and any conditions of the student’s acceptance.
  2. A Student Degree Plan -  student’s personal program guideline
  3. UST Orientation Information
  4. Faith and Culture Student Orientation and Retreat Information

There are three additional steps:

  • All students are required to set up a stthom.edu email and user account by initially going to peter.stthom.edu and follow the set-up instructions.  All official UST correspondence and emergency notifications are sent to the student’s stthom.edu account only.  A student’s university email can then be linked to a personal email account for convenience.
  • Students should contact the CFC to schedule academic advising. 
  • After academic advising, students can go to the myStThom portal on the UST website, log in, and select Student Self Service to register online for classes. 

The myStThom portal can also be used to access your course schedule and grades, check the status of your financial aid, review your university account, and to access additional online resources such as Blackboard and Webmail.  Blackboard is the course management software you and your instructors will share.  You can also check your campus e-mail using Webmail.   

Faith and Culture Student Orientation and Retreat

After admission to the MAFC or Certificate program, the Center for Faith and Culture requires all students to attend its own Orientation and Retreat.  This is a two-day retreat normally held the weekend (Friday to a Saturday afternoon) prior to the beginning of semester classes.  The retreat is intended to orient the student to the program and to key principles for program success, especially as it relates to dialogue and the cohort concepts.  Attendance is obligatory

Contact the Center for Faith and Culture for specific dates and information.

Additionally, the University of St. Thomas provides its own orientation programs giving students the opportunity to get to know the University, the faculty and some of their classmates. The orientation programs are designed to provide specific information for new students and to help you register for class.
