At Fontbonne, we are committed to increasing the accessibility of higher education for all of our students. We currently offer affordable, differential tuition on more than 20 master’s, doctoral and certificate programs (ranging from business and fine arts to education and cybersecurity). In addition, the university provides a variety of discounts and grants that make it easier for graduate students to obtain a high quality, mission-driven education.
Students who graduated with a bachelor’s degree from Fontbonne are eligible for a 15 percent discount on their graduate tuition. This discount may exclude some laboratory and studio courses and must be requested each semester.
New graduate students who are employed by any of Fontbonne’s 47 corporate partners will receive a 20 percent discount on graduate tuition. The discount will also apply to former employees who left their positions or were furloughed in 2020, as well as members of an employee’s immediate family. This discount is made possible through the university’s corporate partnership program, which is dedicated to building and sustaining relationships with companies and private foundations by providing their employees with advanced educational opportunities.
Deaf Education and Speech-Language Pathology Grants
Boasting one of the nation’s best communication disorders and deaf education programs, Fontbonne University has been awarded more than $8 million in federal grants to fund graduate programs that will increase the number of professionals qualified to work with children with communication disorders or who are deaf or hard of hearing. Students pursuing a master’s degree in deaf education, a master’s degree in early intervention in deaf education or a master’s degree in speech-language pathology may qualify for grant funding to support their education opportunities at Fontbonne.
