Aquinas College Admissions

  • student reading a book "ican Stand For Justice"

Concerned about more than just grades? You could be a Saint.

Aquinas College students (Saints) care about more than test scores and placement rates (though both are very good). Instead, AQ Saints strive to make our world a better place. As a small Catholic liberal arts college named for Thomas Aquinas, we don’t teach our students what to think, but how. Our students learn to pursue truth, seek justice, live with passion and act with courage. Prayer, study, community, and service are the foundation of all our students do, and our students do great things. If you want to live a life filled not only with achievement but with purpose and meaning, you could be a Saint.


Undergraduate Students
Aquinas College will give you the time and space to ponder new ideas, to dream boldly and without limit. And, most important, to question the role you can play in making the world a better, brighter place. The big lesson is this: You really can make all the difference in the world. 


Graduate Students
Our graduate students put theory into practice and learn to think strategically in the real world. Small class sizes facilitated by experts in the field allow you to learn more than you ever imagined! That's just part of the AQ advantage. 

Continuing Education

Continuing Education Students
While the program is geared for adult students with adult responsibilities, the educational standards are exactly what you'd expect from a traditional private liberal arts college. You can choose from more than 60 areas of study. Classes are taught in real classrooms by highly experienced professors.
