Five Steps to Apply | Thomas More College

Five Steps to Apply

Welcome to the application process! Thomas More College uses a rolling admissions process; there are no deadlines to apply. It is perfectly acceptable to send your application in parts. Once our incoming class fills up, admitted students move to a wait list.

Admission to Thomas More College is competitive. However, unlike many colleges and universities, our admissions process is free—and short.  Within a couple of weeks of submitting your complete application, you will receive a decision from the Admissions Committee.

See below for the steps to complete your academic application to the College.  You will also find buttons to the other steps in the enrollment process.

Steps to Apply

The Online Application: Begin by filling out and submitting the initial part of the online application. Once you submit this, you will be given access to the full application, and will be sent a link via email so you can return to your application whenever you want. The application will save itself, and if you ever lose that link, you can resubmit the initial part and it will be resent to you.

The Application Essay: To keep things simple, we have integrated the online application and essay submission. Once you have begun your online application, write a two to three page essay which discusses a person, place, text or event that has deepened your desire to know the truth. Then, simply drag and drop your essay in the box in the application form.

Letters of Recommendation: We ask that you request two letters of recommendation: one academic, and one that speaks to your character. Once you have begun your online application, simply enter the email address of the references you’ve asked into the ‘letter of recommendation’ boxes, and they will be sent an email from us with a short form for them to fill out.

Transcripts: Again, in the spirit of simplicity, we have integrated the online application and transcript submission. Contact each high school and college (if applicable) that you have attended and request your official transcripts. They may be uploaded within the application, or be sent by request to Thomas More College of Liberal Arts. Thomas More College also accepts the GED. If you are home schooled and do not use a program with an accredited transcript please use our Home School Transcript.

Standardized Testing: Finally, Thomas More does not currently require standardized test scores. We do, however, welcome test results from the Classic Learning Test, ACT or SAT. The school code for the SAT 3892. The school code for the ACT 2531.

TOEFL: International students whose native language is not English must submit TOEFL scores. Students should achieve a cumulative score of at least 90, with at least a score of 20 in each section.

Spring Semester Deadline: While Thomas More College of Liberal Arts offers rolling admissions, there is a deadline for students who wish to begin their attendance in the Spring Semester, rather than in the Fall. This deadline is December 17th. All applicants for the Spring Semester must submit all necessary materials, including federal verification paperwork, if selected on the FAFSA, by that date. Beyond that date, students interested in emergency or extraordinary enrollment should call the Admissions Office for assistance.

Thomas More College offers a single, integrated Catholic liberal arts curriculum to all its students.  The College does not normally accept transfer credit for individual courses. An exception is made for veterans of the United States Armed Forces, any of whose previous courses corresponding to courses in our curriculum will be considered for transfer. In certain rare cases in which the academic program of a sister institution closely matches the College’s, a student may be eligible to transfer with several semesters of advanced standing.
