Why No Government Funding

To preserve its autonomy and Catholic identity, Thomas Aquinas College does not seek or accept direct, campus-based government funding. Students may, however, receive government guaranteed loans and individual tuition grants for which they are eligible as citizens of the United States, the state of California, or Canada. The College cautiously monitors the federal and state regulatory climate as it pertains to higher education to ensure that students’ participation in these programs does not compromise the College’s Catholic character or its educational mission in any way.

Since its beginning, Thomas Aquinas College has relied on the sacrifices of parents and students and upon the great generosity of its benefactors to sustain its mission. To make a gift to Thomas Aquinas College, please visit the online donation form.
