IMPORTANT MESSAGE FOR OUT-OF-STATE APPLICANTS: Every state government regulates whether universities located in other states can enroll students in online programs. This process is called out-of-state authorization. Some states do not allow their students to enroll students in online programs at outside universities at all; other states charge the outside universities high fees to enroll even one student from that state. For this reason, Thomas University may not be able to enroll students from outside Georgia in every online program we offer. We accept students from as many states as possible. Please contact Admissions at admissions@thomasu.edu or 800.538.9784 ext 1114 to find out if your state is authorized for Thomas University.
