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.
Students who receive the GI Bill® benefits cannot use their benefits to cover these courses. If they have questions, please contact Dr. Piacentini at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Current winter 2022 Acadeum course offerings can be found here.
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 the Registrar’s Office at email@example.com.
Students registered in Acadeum courses are subject to the drop date published for each course on the Acadeum website. The withdraw deadline for Acadeum courses is the same as the deadline for all Fontbonne courses for each term. To withdraw from an Acadeum course during the withdrawal period, please submit a signed change of registration form to the Registrar’s Office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
