Scholarship Day

Our next Scholarship Day will be on Saturday, February 11, 2017!

Students who are eligible for consideration for the President and Vice President’s Scholarships will be invited to campus for the day. Candidates for these prestigious scholarships will be interviewed and they’ll be able to participate in Mass, information sessions, and a campus tour. Participants will also have the opportunity to meet current Aquinas students, faculty, and staff.


Many students and their families will be on campus, nearing the end of their search by interviewing for the premiere scholarships. Get the chance to meet and get to know one another! Scholarship interviews will be conducted by current faculty and staff and students will be given their interview times when they arrive.


Students applying for need-based financial assistance are required to file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as soon as possible. The Aquinas College school code is (003477).
