    While we invite family members to accompany students on visits to campus, this offer only applies to students admitted to the university and not to their parents/guardians or other family members. Parent/guardians or other family members will be responsible for their own travel and accommodations.

    If you are a student who has participated in a recognized leadership development/college access program with a Community Based Organization (CBO) that serves economically disadvantaged students – like Chicago Scholars, College Possible or AVID – St. Thomas may reimburse the full cost of your airline ticket and cab fare. Total reimbursement cannot exceed $500.

    COVID-19 Visit Policy

    In accordance with CDC, MDH, and University of St. Thomas Policies:

    We want campus to be a safe place for everyone, and expect visitors to be vaccinated. St. Thomas requires face coverings in indoor public spaces when others are present. This applies to all community members regardless of vaccination status.

    If you are feeling sick, we ask that you stay home, and instead contact our Visit Office to reschedule your visit.
