Have you dropped below your full-time course load this semester and need to get back to at least 12 credit hours? Are you struggling in one of your current courses and need to take an additional course to maintain or boost your GPA? Want to get ahead by picking up an extra course before the new semester begins?
If so, then Acadeum may be right for you!
Fontbonne University offers a variety of online courses through Acadeum, a consortium of like-minded accredited colleges and universities that share online course offerings. You can see a list of pre-approved online consortium courses below. A course taken through this consortium is considered institutional credit and will impact student grade-point averages just like any other FBU course.
Courses taken during the winter term will be included as part of the fall semester course load.
For purposes of enrollment, winter term courses offered through Acadeum are included as part of the fall semester.
To register for an Acadeum course, students need to create an Acadeum account and also submit a Change of Registration form.
To register for an Acadeum course, sign up for an Acadeum account using your Fontbonne email address. Then, go to settings and complete the full student profile, including your student ID and home address. You can then search the Acadeum system for available courses in upcoming terms and submit a request through Acadeum to enroll in your preferred Acadeum course.
On Fontbonne’s add/drop form, input the relevant Acadeum course number and title from the table below and enter the word “ACADEUM” in the instructor signature space. MAKE SURE BOTH THE STUDENT AND ADVISOR SIGNATURES ARE INCLUDED before submitting the add/drop form. Signatures can appear on the form itself or via an email thread of consent by both the student and the advisor. Once completed, submit the add/drop form to Sr. Kristina DeNeve at firstname.lastname@example.org.
These equivalencies are valid for the winter 2020 term. Winter 2020 courses with start dates available here.
If the current list of approved courses does not meet your needs, feel free to look through Acadeum course offerings and email Sr. Kristina DeNeve at email@example.com if you see a course that might work for you.
