As an employee of BJC HealthCare, you want the best for your patients. And as an institution of higher education since 1923, we want to provide the best education possible for those who are serving a world in need.


  • Eligible employees, spouses and adult children will enjoy a significantly reduced tuition rate.* See rates below. NOTE: when using a corporate discount, no other scholarships or discounts can be applied.
  • Concentrations of management and supply chain are available within a degree or as a stand-alone track.
  • Terms begin in January, March, May, July, August and October.
  • Each course lasts eight weeks.
  • Online classes provide flexibility; log on when it’s convenient for you.
  • No GMAT (Graduate Management Admission Test) required for most graduate programs (exceptions: Accounting and MBA in Accounting).
  • New undergraduate Business Administration cohort program specially designed for BJC HealthCare employees.

*Tuition is subject to increase each academic year in the same percentage as Fontbonne’s regular tuition. Credit hour rates will maintain equivalent discount if tuition increases. Tuition discount applies to part-time evening/online programs. The discount cannot be considered for full-time enrollment in a traditional day program. Traditional day students typically receive financial packages that far exceed the tuition discount opportunity. Applicants cannot receive both the tuition discount and the full-time financial package. Advisors will advise on the option that is the most beneficial for the student based on enrollment status.

Degree Completion

Local BJC HealthCare employees – and their spouses and adult children – may enroll in undergraduate courses offered in face-to-face, online or blended (features both online and face-to-face instruction) formats at the approved 20% discount to complete the core requirements of a bachelor degree program.

BJC HealthCare applicants in other states, where approved, may take undergraduate courses online under the 20% discount to complete core requirements of a bachelor degree program.

It is understood that non-local BJC HealthCare applicants needing to complete general studies as part of an undergraduate program, may take these required courses at a regionally accredited school as they are not offered online at Fontbonne University but will be evaluated upon admission to determine if they are transferable.

Currently enrolled undergraduate BJC HealthCare applicants must receive prior authorization from their Fontbonne advisor to take courses at institutions other than Fontbonne to ensure that credits are transferable.

Why Fontbonne?

You’ll get a lot of facts, figures and theories from most programs, but we think knowledge is just the beginning. What employers need today – what BJC HealthCare wants from its staff and management – are employees who can navigate the expected and unexpected challenges of today’s healthcare and business landscapes. Fontbonne faculty understand this, and they help prepare you with the critical thinking and analytical skills that you can use on the job immediately.
