It is often thought that Private Universities charge much higher tuition and fees than other schools therefore making it hard to afford the highest quality education. At Thomas University we are proud to say that is not the case. Here are some facts about affording your education at Thomas University:
Fact: Fees at a neighboring public university total more than $800.00 per semester (full time), nearly double Thomas University's fees. In addition, some students must pay additional fees and purchase health insurance for $1050.00 per year.
Fact: Approximately 90% of Thomas University’s students receive some form of financial aid through federal, state and/or institutional sources. Aid may take the form of grants, scholarships or loans. Graduate assistantships are available to graduate students who work in exchange for reduced tuition.
Fact: Thomas University has one of the lowest tuition rates among other private, four-year institutions in Georgia.
Fact: The percentage of low and middle income students at Thomas University is comparable to that of state institutions, because we are committed to making a private university education affordable to everyone.
Fact: Students who work full-time, have a high school equivalency diploma, or face other challenges are far more likely to graduate from a private college or university than a state institution, and that is why it is our mission to help you reach your personal and professional goals.
Fact: The public universities in our area have a time limit on how old transfer credits can be, thus requiring students to repeat many “core curriculum” classes such as History, Algebra, etc. TU has no such time limit. At neighboring universities this adds as much as $800 - $5,000 plus fees to the overall cost to the student.
Fact: Students who earn Bachelor’s degrees are able to do so sooner at a private institution than at state institutions, avoiding additional tuition and beginning their careers earlier.
