The Primitive Baptists relinquished their control over the institute in 1976, following which it was renamed Thomas County Community College. It became Thomas College in 1986, and was finally christened Thomas University in January, 2000. The university's campus is located in Thomasville, Georgia.
Thomas University awards associate's, bachelor's, as well as master's degrees. Courses are available in education, health and human services, business, and criminal justice, among others. Continuing education opportunities are also provided by the university.
