The transition from high school to college is a difficult one in the best of times, and this year has been especially challenging. To ensure that our first-year students have a successful experience, Fontbonne offers the Refresh program for freshmen who withdrew from or will receive a D or an F in one of the following courses:
• ENG 101 (3 credits) Composition I
• ENG 102 (3 credits) Composition II
• GOV 101 (1 credit) U.S. and Missouri Constitutions
• LIB 199 (1 credit) Information Literacy in Higher Education
• MTH 115 (3 credits) Introduction to Statistics
• PSY 100 (3 Credits) Introduction to Psychology
Refresh is a free program that will be offered during the summer interim (May 10, 2021 – June 4, 2021). It will allow students to build upon any knowledge and skills they learned during the fall semester. They will be in small classes with faculty who will provide necessary assistance as they retake the course.
The grade earned in Refresh will replace the grade earned during the fall or spring semester. If the new grade is higher, it will immediately raise the student’s grade point average, decreasing the risk of being placed on probation, getting suspended or becoming ineligible to participate in athletic competitions.
Students may enroll in one of these courses at no cost if they withdrew from the course during the fall 2020 or spring 2021 semesters, or if their final grade in the course was a D or an F.
Final grades for the fall semester will be posted no later than Tuesday, May 4. Refresh classes start on Monday, May 10 and continue via in-person instruction through June 4. If you took one of the courses listed above and believe that you qualify for this program, you may register in GriffinNet and/or reach out to Corey Hawkins, Director of Student Success at email@example.com or at 314-889-4780 by no later than May 9, 20201. You will then receive a syllabus and additional information from your course’s instructor.
