Fontbonne University will No Longer Require Standardized Test Scores for General Admission

Fontbonne University is the only school in Missouri to adopt a test-free policy for general admission. In addition to no longer accepting ACT or SAT scores, students with a 3.0-grade point average will meet the minimum criteria for automatic admission to Fontbonne. For students with less than a 3.0 GPA, Fontbonne will conduct a holistic application review to determine general admission. “We are not lowering our standards–we have widened the doors of access to hardworking students,” says Quinton Clay, Vice President of Enrollment Management, Marketing and Communications.
