St. Thomas' 2-Year College to Benefit Low-Income Students

St. Thomas will begin offering a two-year program through its new Dougherty Family College to provide a pathway for students from disadvantaged backgrounds to four-year degrees.

150 students will pay as little  as $1,000 per year to earn a two-year associates degree and have the opportunity to transfer into a four-year program. Students will be assessed for admission using different standards from those applied to traditional students, and will be provided culturally responsive instruction during their program.
