    Preparing for Registration

    You will register for your fall semester courses during a meeting with an Academic Counselor. You can schedule your registration appointment on any weekday starting April 27 through September 8. However, earlier is best for maximum class availability.

    Please contact Academic Counseling to schedule your appointment. Be sure you indicate you are a transfer student for Fall 2021 in your voicemail or email, and our staff will contact you to schedule a registration appointment.

    During the appointment, your academic counselor will:

    • Inquire about your goals and interests.
    • Review specific requirements for your degree program.
    • Review requirements for which you may have already earned credit (if applicable)
    • Assist you with class registration for fall semester.

    Housing and Dining

    Decisions, decisions! Deciding where to live is intertwined with our Core Curriculum, which helps prepare you for success both during and after college. You'll want to understand the difference between a Living Learning Community and a Theme-Based Learning Community, and how those relate to your On or Off -Campus living decision.

    On Campus Housing

    Living on campus in a Residence Hall helps you meet other students and form community here on campus.

    Each Residence Hall is unique, so we suggest a little research to find your best fit.

    Off-Campus Housing

    Some students commute from home or live in off-campus housing. Both are viable options for students in 2021.

    Off-Campus Student Life supports and connects commuters at St. Thomas.

    Dining Meal Plan

    St. Thomas has a variety of meal plan options to fit many student needs; find the one that best fits your needs.

    Please also talk with us about your dietary restrictions.

    Decisions about Finances

    Taking care of the business of paying for school and managing the money is primarily your responsibility now.

    The Financial Aid Checklist will help you ensure you've taken care of the necessary steps to pay for college.

    You'll want to finish deciding on financial aid options, submitting deposits, and deciding who is going to pay the bills...and giving them the access to do it.

    Accommodations and Disability Resources

    The accommodations you had in high school can be extended into college. Please reach out to our Disability Resources team to discuss things like note-takers, audio texts, alternate exam arrangements, assistive technology, and any other accommodation you need to be a success.
