MIAMI, May 31, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- As the cost of higher education increases, Miami's St. Thomas University continued offering summer tuition discounts to benefit families' budgets. For the summer of 2012, STU offered kids a 40% discount. An undergraduate course would normally cost almost $2,400 but it was discounted to about $1,400, making the private college experience an affordable one.


The University is part of the 21st Century Community Centers in Florida, which service approximately 81,000 low-income students and their adult family members each day. Honoring South Florida's diversity, St. Thomas has called its private college program "Go, Allez, Vamos," serving 320 low income, minority and limited English-proficient students. The project provides on-site tutoring and enrichment activities after school throughout the year as well as a 3-week summer program. Its goals include maximizing students' academic potential in reading, math and science as well as developing healthy physical practices. 

Meanwhile, St. Thomas continues to engage South Florida's high school students in fun activities that at the same time promote academic interests. The School of Science enables undergraduates to join faculty in spinal cord injury research and other investigations. Staying cutting edge, the School offered this summer a two-week course on "forensic genetics" taught by Dr. Dieter Defoce from Ghent University in Belgium.
