The St. Thomas Promise at the University of St. Thomas allows UST to deliver the same excellent education that UST is recognized for to deserving first-time freshmen college students who would not otherwise be able to afford college. This is a huge opportunity at no cost to eligible students that will change their lives and financial situations, and it is right in line with the University of St. Thomas Catholic mission.
- Incoming, first-time college students with a 3.4 or higher GPA* who are from families with annual incomes of $50,000 or less may take advantage of this offer.
- Eligible students must be a Texas resident and must file the FAFSA form and must be eligible for federal and state aid. UST’s FAFSA Code is 003654. This St. Thomas Promise of free tuition also includes free tutorial services plus a mentor for the first year to help ensure a successful transition to college.
- The St. Thomas Promise is renewable for up to four years, providing family income remains in the same qualifying range.
