Changing Colleges Was Never Easier

No matter where your journey begins, Thomas College can be your pathway to a promising future, guaranteed.

We’re glad you’re thinking about finishing your studies at Thomas College, and we believe Thomas has what you’re looking for. Whether you’re transferring from a community college, looking for a better fit, or exploring more affordable options, we’re here to bring your promising future within reach. And now, with the Maine Transfer Guarantee Program, students who have graduated (or will graduate shortly) with their Associate’s degree from a Maine community college may transfer to Thomas College easily.

Applying for Transfer Admission

Thomas College receives transfer students from in-state and out-of-state community colleges and universities every semester. To help you decide if Thomas is a good fit for you, we make the transcript evaluation process simple. If you have not already applied to Thomas, click the button below to submit your official college transcripts for credit evaluation. A representative from the admissions office will reach out within three business days to discuss your evaluation.

Submit Your Application

Submit your application for undergraduate admission. We accept the Thomas College Application, which takes about ten minutes to complete, or the Common Application. You can choose which one you’d like to complete; both are treated equally in our selection process. International transfer applicants should refer to our international admissions process. Provide supporting documentation. This includes:

  • Official Transcripts (from all high schools and all colleges previously attended)

Begin the Financial Aid Process

When you apply, we’ll automatically consider you for merit-based scholarships. Students seeking financial assistance other than merit-based scholarships should file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and list Thomas College (Title IV code 002052) as an authorized recipient of your information. Applicants will not receive a financial aid package until a course credit evaluation is completed. For more information, please visit our Financial Aid page or contact Jeannine Ross, Executive Director of Student Financial Services.
